NAME

       rmf - remove an nmh folder

SYNOPSIS

       rmf [+folder] [-interactive | -nointeractive] [-version] [-help]

DESCRIPTION

       Rmf removes all of the messages (files) within the specified (or default) folder, and then
       removes the folder (directory) itself.

       If there are any files within the folder which are not a part of nmh,  they  will  not  be
       removed,  and  an  error  will  be  produced.   If  the  folder is given explicitly or the
       -nointeractive option is given, then the folder  will  be  removed  without  confirmation.
       Otherwise, the user will be asked for confirmation.  If rmf can't find the current folder,
       for some reason, the folder to be removed  defaults  to  `+inbox'  (unless  overridden  by
       user's profile entry “Inbox”) with confirmation.

       If  the folder being removed is a subfolder, the parent folder will become the new current
       folder, and rmf will produce a message telling the user this has happened.  This  provides
       an  easy  mechanism  for selecting a set of messages, operating on the list, then removing
       the list and returning to the current folder from which the list was extracted.

       If rmf s used on a read-only folder, it will delete all  the  (private)  sequences  (i.e.,
       “atr-seq-folder”  entries)  for this folder from your context without affecting the folder
       itself.

       Rmf irreversibly deletes messages that don't have other links, so use it with caution.

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
       Inbox:               To find the default inbox

SEE ALSO

       rmm(1)

DEFAULTS

       `+folder' defaults to the current folder, usually with confirmation
       `-interactive' if +folder' not given, `-nointeractive' otherwise

CONTEXT

       Rmf will set the current folder to the parent folder if a subfolder is removed; or if  the
       current folder is removed, it will make “inbox” current.  Otherwise, it doesn't change the
       current folder or message.

BUGS

       Although intuitively one would suspect that rmf works recursively, it does not.  Hence  if
       you have a sub-folder within a folder, in order to rmf the parent, you must first rmf each
       of the children.
