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`
