NAME
       rmf - remove an nmh folder

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

DESCRIPTION
       rmf  removes  all  of the messages (files) within the specified (or de-
       fault) 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, for  some  reason,  find  the
       current	folder	the  folder to be removed defaults to `+inbox' (unless
       overridden by the user's	profile	entry "Inbox"),	with confirmation.

       If the folder being removed is a	subfolder, the parent folder will  be-
       come 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 is used on a read-only folder, it	will delete  all  the  private
       sequences (i.e.,	.RI "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
       folder(1), 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" cur-
       rent.  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.
