NAME
       next - show the next nmh message

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

DESCRIPTION
       next performs a show on the next message in the specified (or current)
       folder.  Like show, it passes any switches on to the program showproc
       or showmimeproc, which is called to list the message.  This command is
       almost exactly equivalent to “show next”.  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
       prev(1), show(1)

DEFAULTS
       +folder             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 next message in sequence) will become
       the current message.

BUGS
       next is really a link to the show program.  As a result, if you make a
       link to next and that link is not called next, 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 next to the entry.
