MHPARAM(1)                                                          MHPARAM(1)




NAME

       mhparam - print nmh profile components


SYNOPSIS

       mhparam [components] [-all] [-component] [-nocomponent]
            [-version] [-help]


DESCRIPTION

       Mhparam  writes  the  value  of  the specified profile component to the
       standard output separated by newlines.  If the profile component is not
       present,  the  default  value  (or  nothing  if there is no default) is
       printed.

       If the switch `-component' is given, then the component  name  is  dis-
       played  along  with the profile components value.  This can be disabled
       with the switch `-nocomponent'.

       If more than one component is specified in the `components' list,  then
       the  switch  `-component'  is  on by default.  If only one component is
       specified, then the switch `-nocomponent' is on by default.

       If `-all' is specified, then all components in the nmh profile are dis-
       played and other arguments are ignored.

       Examples:

            % mhparam path
            Mail

            % mhparam mhlproc
            /usr/lib/nmh/mhl

            % mhparam -component path
            Path: Mail

            % mhparam AliasFile rmmproc
            AliasFile: aliases
            rmmproc: rmmproc

            % mhparam -nocomponent AliasFile rmmproc
            aliases
            rmmproc

       Mhparam is also useful in back-quoted operations:

            % fgrep cornell.edu `mhpath +`/`mhparam aliasfile`
