NAME
       folders	- list folders and contents (only available within the message
       handling system, mh)

SYNOPSIS
       folders [+folder] [msg] [options]

OPTIONS
       Lists only the name of folders, with no additional  information.	  This
       is  faster  because the folders need not be read.  Prints a list of the
       valid options to this command.  Lists the contents of the folder-stack.
       No  +folder  argument is allowed with this option.  Re-numbers messages
       in the folders. Messages are re-numbered sequentially, and any gaps  in
       the numbering are removed. The default operation is -nopack, which does
       not change the numbering in  the	 folder.   Discards  the  top  of  the
       folder-stack,  after  setting  the  current  folder  to	that value. No
       +folder argument is allowed with this option. This corresponds  to  the
       popd  operation	in the C-shell; see csh(1). The -push and -pop options
       are mutually exclusive: the last occurrence of either one overrides any
       previous	 occurrence  of the other.  Pushes the current folder onto the
       folder-stack, and makes the +folder argument into the  current  folder.
       If  +folder is not given, the current folder and the top of the folder-
       stack are exchanged. This corresponds to the pushd operation in the  C-
       shell;  see  csh(1).  The -push switch and the -pop switch are mutually
       exclusive: the last occurrence of either	 one  overrides	 any  previous
       occurrence  of  the  other.   Lists folders recursively. Information on
       each folder is displayed, followed by information  on  any  sub-folders
       which  it  contains.   Displays	only  the total number of messages and
       folders in your Mail directory. This option does not print any informa‚Äź
       tion  about individual folders. It can be suppressed using the -nototal
       option.

       The defaults for folders are:

       +folder	defaults to all
       msg defaults to none
       -nofast
       -noheader
       -nototal
       -nopack
       -norecurse

DESCRIPTION
       The folders command displays the names of your folders and  the	number
       of messages that they each contain.

       The  folders  command  displays	a list of all the folders in your Mail
       directory. The folders are sorted alphabetically, each on its own line.
       This is illustrated in the following example: Folder	 # of messages
       (  range	 ); cur	 msg  (other files)
	   V2.3	 has	3 messages (   1-   3).
	 adrian	 has   20 messages (   1-  20); cur=   2.
	  brian	 has   16 messages (   1-  16).
	  chris	 has   12 messages (   1-  12).
	copylog	 has  242 messages (   1- 242); cur= 225.
	  inbox+ has   73 messages (   1- 127); cur= 127.
	    int	 has	4 messages (   1-   4); cur=   2  (others).
	   jack	 has   17 messages (   1-  17); cur=  17.

	     TOTAL= 387 messages in 8 folders.

       The plus sign (+) after inbox indicates that it is the current  folder.
       The  information	 about the int folder includes the term (others). This
       indicates that the folder int contains files which  are	not  messages.
       These  files  may  be  either  sub-folders, or files that do not belong
       under the MH file naming scheme.

       The folders command is identical to the effect of using the -all option
       to the folder command.

       If  you	use folders with the +folder argument, it will display all the
       subfolders within the named folder. as shown in the following example:

       % folders +test Folder		# of messages (	 range	 );  cur   msg
       (other	files)	 test+	 has		18   messages	(    1-	  18);
       (others).  test/testone has    1 message	 (    1-    1).	  test/testtwo
       has   no messages.

	      TOTAL=   19 messages in 3 folders.

       See refile(1) for more details of sub-folders.
