cats2procmailrc is a filter to generate a .procmailrc file from a much terser and friendlier file consisting mostly of single-line rules. These suffice to do the most common mail filing, making maintenance of a procmailrc very easy for someone with more than a few filing rules. Each rule normally names the folder, an optional subject tag, and the pattern. Raw procmail rules may also be included for those rare complex filings.
