New issue by hallyn on mblaze repository

https://github.com/leahneukirchen/mblaze/issues/208

Description:
If I do 'mscan' after an 'mseq -S', it shows the sequence.  If I do 'mscan < /dev/null', it shows nothing.  If I do "mscan' again, it shows all messages again.  I noticed this when running mscan inside a script launched through dmenu.  Doing 'mseq | mscan' worked around it in that script, but this seemed unintentional based on the code.

Comment:
No, this is intentional. Some mblaze tools check if input is a tty and do some useful default behavior then.

```
     If no msgs are specified, mscan reads filenames from the standard input,
     or scans the mails in the current sequence if used interactively.
```

You can use `mscan :` instead.

Oh, thanks.  I didn't know about ':'.  I would open a PR to update the manpage, but I need to understand precisely how it's used first.  I'll try to do that in the next few days (unless you say you don't want it).

Oh I see.  I suppose that's covered by the mmsg manpage.
