[logo] SCEN103 -- pine and xv Worksheet

Several of you have asked me about mailing pictures or other binary files via pine. This turns out to be fairly straightforward using the Attachment feature.

  • If not yet configured, return to the main menu of pine to configure the image viewer.
    • Select 's' to setup and then 'c' to configure.
    • Scroll to the end of the configuration menu to the entry
      image-viewer = <No Value Set>
    • Select 'a' (Add Value) and enter 'xv' as the value to be added so that the entry appears as:
      image-viewer = xv
    • Select 'e' to exit the configuration menu and 'l' to reopen your INBOX.


Completion of the exercise requires you to note the contents of the graphics file attached to the recent e-mail message and make a few estimates and calculations.
