~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 


alias pine "\pine -d0"                    #create 0 debug files

#If you compartmentalize your pinerc, use something like the following
### alias pine "\pine -d0 -P $HOME/Pine/pinerc.generic -p $HOME/Pine/pinerc.host"

alias pi   "pine -i"                      #index of inbox
alias pl   "pine -I l"                    #list folders
alias plt  "pine -I l -sort orderedsubj"  #list and thread folders
alias pg   "pine -I g"                    #go
alias pa   "pine -I a"                    #addressbook
alias pc   "pine -I c"                    #compose
alias psc  "pine -I 's,c'"                #setup config

#Next depend on organization of your incoming-folders and folder-collections
#I use ~/Folders for default saves and ~/MailLists for mailing list archives
alias pgf  "pine -I 'g,,'"            #go to Folders
alias pgml "pine -I 'g,,,'"         #go to MailLists
alias pgmlt "pine -I 'g,,,' -sort orderedsubj" #go to MailLists, thread

#I often look at these folders. (Instead of sent-mail I use Mailed)
alias pm   "pine -if Mailed"
alias pp   "pine -if Posted"
alias pr   "pine -if Received"
