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
       current) 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
       message 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.
