There must be a program out there that does this, but I'm having a hard
time finding anything appropriate.

I want to filter a local mailbox (mbox or maildir would be fine) and
spit out mbox on stdout, with only the messages that match some filter.
An example might be, only messages more recent than 24 hours ago.

Can procmail be wrangled into this sort of bulk processing? Is there something
else out there to do this? It seems like an immensely helpful thing to

Hans Fugal ;
There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the 
right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
