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 displayed
       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
       displayed and other arguments are ignored.

       Examples:

            % mhparam path
            Mail

            % mhparam mhlproc
            /usr/lib/mh/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`
