DILOOKUP(8)                 System Manager's Manual                DILOOKUP(8)

       dilookup - Diablo program to run searches on the dhistory file

       dilookup [ -s ] [ -V ] [ message-id / h1.h2 ]

       DiLookup will look a message-id or hash-code pair up in the dhistory
       database.  The message-id must be surrounded by < >, while the hash-
       code pair consists of two hex numbers separated by a dot.  For example:

       dilookup '<sdf$sdlfk@asdlfjk.com>'

       dilookup D.00d9513e/00183712.005b433b.0000

       dilookup 00183712.005b433b.0000

       dilookup 00183712.005b433b

       As you can see, DiLookup also accepts a directory/filename form, just
       the filename form, or just the hash code pair.  It will silently
       discard everything but the hash code pair.  When given a message-id,
       DiLookup will convert the message-id to a hash code pair internally.
       DiLookup will also parse message-id's directory out of queue files
       which can be useful in a tail -f situation.

       Valid options are:


       Print the version number and exit.


       Take ids from standard input instead of the command line. This is
       useful if you want to look up many articles. In the mode, everything up
       to the first space in the standard input is ignored in the lookup, but
       prepended to the output line.

       For Diablo 3 style spools, the result is usually something like:

        [P.03/D.00fa6716/B.0b1b hv=aa63f9bf.36b5877a spool=03 gm=16410390
       ex=103 off=0 len=1245 f=] GM=(15-Mar-2001 03:30:00) EX=(valid)

       The hash code pair and iteration, the spool in which the article is
       stored, the time in gmt-minutes when the article was received (NOT when
       it was posted!), the expiration (see EX), the offset in the spool file,
       the length of the article and flags (header-only entry). If bit 15 is
       set in the expiration field, the spool is storing a header-only
       article. Otherwise the spool is storing a full article.

       GM= is a decoding of the gm field in human-readable GMT.

       EX= decodes some bits of the the ex field.
