;;; Code:

(provide 'mh-mime)

;; To do:
;; paragraph code should not fill # lines if MIME enabled.
;; implement mh-auto-edit-mhn (if non-nil, \\[mh-send-letter]
;;	invokes mh-edit-mhn automatically before sending.)
;;      actually, instead of mh-auto-edit-mhn,
;;      should read automhnproc from profile
;; MIME option to mh-forward
;; command to move to content-description insertion point

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
