PREV(1)                                                                PREV(1)




NAME

       prev - show the previous message


SYNOPSIS

       prev [+folder] [-showproc program] [-showmimeproc program]
            [-header] [-noheader] [-checkmime] [-nocheckmime]
            [-switches for showproc or showmimeproc]
            [-version] [-help]


DESCRIPTION

       Prev  performs a show on the previous message in the specified (or cur-
       rent) folder.  Like show, it passes any  switches  on  to  the  program
       named by showproc or showmimeproc, which is called to list the message.
       This command is almost exactly equivalent to "show prev".  Consult  the
       manual entry for show (1) for all the details.


FILES

       $HOME/.mh_profile                    The user profile


PROFILE COMPONENTS

       Path:                To determine the user's nmh directory
       Current-Folder:      To find the default current folder
       showproc:            Program to show non-MIME messages
       showmimeproc:        Program to show MIME messages


SEE ALSO

       show(1), next(1)


DEFAULTS

       `+folder' defaults to the current folder
       `-checkmime'
       `-header'


CONTEXT

       If  a folder is specified, it will become the current folder.  The mes-
       sage that is shown (i.e., the previous message in sequence) will become
       the current message.


BUGS

       prev  is really a link to the show program.  As a result, if you make a
       link to prev and that link is not called prev, your link will act  like
       show  instead.  To circumvent this, add a profile-entry for the link to
       your nmh profile and add the argument prev to the entry.
