use DADA::MailingList::Archives;

        my $archive = DADA::MailingList::Archives->new(-List => \%list);


Archive interface to a simple tied hash archiving system for messages saved in Dada Mail



        my $archive = DADA::MailingList::Archives->new(-List => \%list);

this wil tie the db hash and get you going with this whole gosh darn thing if it has a valid list, it will open up the archive and get to work on it.

        my $entries = $archive -> get_archive_entries();

this will give you a refernce to an array that has the keys to your entries there.


        my $message = get_archive_message($key);

gets the message of the given $key


        my $subject = get_archive_subject($key);

gets the subject of the given $key


my $subject, $message, $format = $archive -> get_archive_subject($key);

gets the subject of the given $key



deletes the archive entry.


 my $search_results = $archive->search_entries($keyword);

Given a $keyword, will return a array ref of archive key/ids that contain the keyword.
