NAME
       ali - list nmh mail aliases

SYNOPSIS
       ali [-help] [-version] [-alias aliasfile] [-list	| -nolist] [-user |
	    -nouser] [aliases ...]

DESCRIPTION
       ali searches the	named mail alias files for each	of the given  aliases.
       It  creates a list of addresses for those aliases, and writes that list
       on standard output.  If no arguments are	given, ali outputs  all	 alias
       entries.

       By  default, when an alias expands to multiple addresses, the addresses
       are separated by	commas and printed on as few lines  as	possible.   If
       the  -list  switch is specified,	and an address expands to multiple ad-
       dresses,	each address will appear on a separate line.

       The -user switch	directs	ali to perform its processing in  an  inverted
       fashion:	instead	of listing the addresses that each given alias expands
       to, ali will list the aliases that expand to each given address.

       The files specified by the profile entry	"Aliasfile" and	any additional
       alias  files  given  by the -alias aliasfile switch will	be read.  Each
       alias is	processed as described in mh-alias(5).

FILES
       Alias files are looked up in multiple locations:	if the pathname	is ab-
       solute  or starts with "."  or ".."  it is accessed directly; otherwise
       tilde expansion is done on usernames, then files	are  searched  for  in
       the  user's Mail	directory as specified in their	profile.  If not found
       there, the directory "/usr/local/etc/nmh" is checked.

       $HOME/.mh_profile   The user's profile.
