countmail
DESCRIPTION

AUTHORS
countmail was first written by Noah Friedman <friedman@splode.com> in 1993. This version was written by Charles M. Hannum <mycroft@NetBSD.org>.
CAVEATS
The read loop is horrendously slow on every shell implementation tried. countmail uses from(1) and wc(1) instead, though these are not shell builtins. NetBSD 9.99 October 3, 1997 NetBSD 9.99
