Description Aldy Hernandez 2007-05-27 12:03:45 EDT
Description of problem:
"alternates" variable no longer available.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Mutt 1.5.14 (2007-02-12)

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set alternates="^foo?\@(.*hotdog\.com|.*hello\.com)" (in muttrc)
2. call mutt
Actual results:

Error in /home/aldyh/.muttrc, line 11: alternates: unknown variable

Expected results:

Additional info:
The option is documented in the current man page.  So either the docs are wrong
or the feature got misplaced :).
Comment 1 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-05-28 10:19:52 EDT
The variable was replaced by a command. Such changes are documented in

This should work: alternates "^foo?\@(.*hotdog\.com|.*hello\.com)"
Comment 2 Aldy Hernandez 2007-05-28 13:27:16 EDT
My mistake.  I didn't realize the variable had become a command.  I will close this.
