                        multiple arguments
                        Either string inputs or files. Supports URL pattern

                        when searching locally
  --loose               Allow loose search by disabling email pattern
                        recognition. Use spaces as pattern seperators
                        Configuration file for API keys. Accepts keys from
                        Snusbase, WeLeakInfo, Leak-Lookup, HaveIBeenPwned,
                        Emailrep, Dehashed and hunterio

  -bc BC_PATH, --breachcomp BC_PATH
                        Path to the breachcompilation torrent folder. Uses the
                        query.sh script included in the torrent

  -sf, --single-file    If breach contains big cleartext or tar.gz files, set
                        this flag to view the progress bar. Disables
                        concurrent file searching for stability
  -ch [CHASE_LIMIT], --chase [CHASE_LIMIT]
                        Add related emails from hunter.io to ongoing target
                        list. Define number of emails per target to chase.

:tangerine: Usage examples

Query for a single target
$ h8mail -t target@example.com
Query for list of targets, indicate config file for API keys, output to pwned_targets.csv
$ h8mail -t targets.txt -c config.ini -o pwned_targets.csv
Query a list of targets against local copy of the Breach Compilation, pass API key for Snusbase from the command line
$ h8mail -t targets.txt -bc ../Downloads/BreachCompilation/ -k "snusbase_token=$snusbase_token"
Query without making API calls against local copy of the Breach Compilation
$ h8mail -t targets.txt -bc ../Downloads/BreachCompilation/ -sk
Search every .gz file for targets found in targets.txt locally, skip default checks
$ h8mail -t targets.txt -gz /tmp/Collection1/ -sk
$ h8mail -t admin@evilcorp.com -lb /tmp/4k_Combo.txt -ch 10 -k "hunterio=ABCDE123"
Query username. Read keys from CLI
$ h8mail -t JSmith89 -q username -k "dehashed_email=user@email.com" "dehashed_key=ABCDE123"
$ h8mail -t -q ip -c h8mail_config_priv.ini -ch 2 --power-chase
Fetch URL content (CLI + file). Target all found emails
$ h8mail -u "https://pastebin.com/raw/kQ6WNKqY" "list_of_urls.txt"
