Using Alpine in a command


Hello,

Maybe I am misreading the alpine man page, but can I invoke it in, say, a shell script?

I know that I can do this with mail using something like this:

mail -s "test message" brie@domain.com


But can this be done with alpine? If so, what is the syntax?


Thanks!

So you can invoke it from the command line? Why not copy what you typed on the command line and paste it into a shell script? How does that work out for you?

It's the same syntax as one would use typing at the command line.
