Ok, but I think finding every msg in a mailbox with a particular
subject, and saving all the attachments to that message in
a folder named yyyy.mm.dd after the date of the message would
be hard with a utility with a cmd line like readmsg. I think
mbox-explode a good example of somebody, namely me, doing something
useful with mailutils. I could have done it with perl, but
I have a belief that the "ease of use" associated with languages
other than C and C++ is largely derived from their libraries,
not the languages themselves, so I wanted to test that.

Anyhow, if you send me a whole man page, I'd have a better idea
what this utilty does.
