Blackarts is a collection of Perl scripts that lets you input text into a quick and dirty knowledge base. It's designed to save information that arrives as email but never gets recorded in a way that's easily accessible later on. The program creates mail gateways to multiple document repositories with tables of contents, sections, and section crosslinking. It's particularly valuable as a documentation tool for a small company or association.
