Installing grepmail in OS X 10.11 #

grepmail is a search tool for mbox files, including those compressed with gzip, bzip2, lzip, or xz.
  1. If you do not have the Command Line Developer Tools installed, run $ xcode-select --install to install them.
  2. Install lzip and xz from source (1, 2), your favorite package manager (Homebrew, MacPorts, etc), or Rudix
  3. $ sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell
  4. cpan[1]> install grepmail
  5. cpan[2]> exit
  6. If, like me, you receive a "command not found" error when attempting to run grepmail, repeat steps 2-4 to resolve.
