PREV(1)			    General Commands Manual		       PREV(1)

NAME
       prev - show the previous	nmh message

SYNOPSIS
       prev [-help] [-version] [+folder] [-showproc program] [-showmimeproc
	    program] [-header |	-noheader] [-checkmime | -nocheckmime]
	    [switches for showproc or showmimeproc]

DESCRIPTION
       prev  performs a	show on	the previous message in	the specified (or cur-
       rent) 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
       next(1),	show(1)

DEFAULTS
       `+folder' defaults to the current folder
       `-checkmime'
       `-header'

CONTEXT
       If  a folder is specified, it will become the current folder.  The mes-
       sage 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.
