NAMEcountmail - be obnoxious about how much mail you have
DESCRIPTIONThe program counts your mail and tells you about it rather obnoxiously.
HISTORYThe program first appeared in Nx 1.3 . was first written by Noah Friedman <firstname.lastname@example.org> in 1993. This version was written by Charles M. Hannum <email@example.com>.
CAVEATSThe read loop is horrendously slow on every shell implementation tried. uses from(1) and wc(1) instead, though these are not shell builtins.
