The Pluses of MH

[return-to: Folders] [table of contents] [index]

Here are two ways plus signs (+) are used in MH:

  1. When you give the name of a folder to an MH command, you type a + before the folder name, with no space between them. An example is:
    % folder +test
  2. When an MH command tells you the current folder, it often puts a + after the folder name. For example:
    test+ has   no messages.
    In both cases, + is not part of the folder name.
