The Pyzor Client is a Python script deployed with the package. It provides a command line interface to the Pyzor Client API:
pyzor [options] command
You can also use the Python API directly to integrate Pyzor in your solution. For more information see pyzor.client.
Checks the message read from stdin and prints the number of times it has been reported and the number of time it has been whitelisted. If multiple servers are listed in the configuration file each server is checked:
$ pyzor check < spam.eml public.pyzor.org:24441 (200, 'OK') 134504 4681
The exit code will be:
- 1 if the report count is 0 or the whitelist count is > 0
- 0 if the report count is > 0 and the whitelist count is 0
Note that you can configure this behaviour by changing the report/whitelist thresholds from the configuration file or the command-line options. See client configuration.
Prints detailed information about the message. The exit code will always be zero (0) if all servers returned (200, ‘OK’):
$ pyzor info < spam.eml public.pyzor.org:24441 (200, 'OK') Count: 134538 Entered: Sat Jan 4 10:01:34 2014 Updated: Mon Mar 17 12:52:04 2014 WL-Count: 4681 WL-Entered: Mon Jan 6 14:32:01 2014 WL-Updated: Fri Mar 14 16:11:02 2014
Reports to the server a digest of each message as spam. Writes to standard output a tuple of (error-code, message) from the server. If multiple servers are listed in the configuration file the message is reported to each one:
$ pyzor report < spam.eml public.pyzor.org:24441 (200, 'OK')
Reports to the server a digest of each message as not-spam. Writes to standard output a tuple of (error-code, message) from the server. If multiple servers are listed in the configuration file the message is reported to each one:
$ pyzor whitelist < spam.eml public.pyzor.org:24441 (200, 'OK')
This command is not available by default for the anonymous user.
Merely requests a response from the servers:
$ pyzor ping public.pyzor.org:24441 (200, 'OK')
Can be used to test pyzor, this will always return a large number of reports and 0 whitelist, regardless of the message:
$ pyzor pong < ham.eml public.pyzor.org:24441 (200, 'OK') 9223372036854775807 0
Prints the message after the predigest phase of the pyzor algorithm:
$ pyzor predigest < test.eml Thisisatest.
Prints the message digest, that will be sent to the server:
$ pyzor digest < spam.eml c3a8e8d987f07843792d2ab1823b04cc3cb87482
Based upon a secret passphrase gathered from the user and randomly gathered salt, prints to standard output a tuple of “salt,key”. Used to put account information into the accounts file.
This file contains a list of servers that will be contacted by the Pyzor client for every operation. If no servers are specified it defaults to the public server:
The servers can also be specified as IP addresses, but they must always be followed by the port number.
For example having this in ~/.pyzor/servers:
# This is comment public.pyzor.org:24441 127.0.0.1:24441
Will configure the client to check both the public server and a local one:
$ pyzor ping public.pyzor.org:24441 (200, 'OK') 127.0.0.1:24441 (200, 'OK')
Pyzor accepts messages in various forms. This can be controlled with the style configuration or command line option. Currently support are:
- msg - individual RFC5321 message
- mbox - mbox file of messages
- digests - Pyzor digests, one per line
