Hi David, > Should we add a warning to the profile parser for post, whom, et al., > entries to note that they're ignored?
I don't think whom(1)'s entry is ignored? Maybe I'm interpreting that wrongly. $ cat >.mh_profile path: . whom: -vote-for-ken ^D $ HOME=$PWD mhparam whom -vote-for-ken $ HOME=$PWD whom whom: -vote-for-ken unknown $ mh-profile(5) does mention `post'. locale: locale Set the locale for all nmh programs except post, install-mh, and slocal. See the LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, and LANG variables in the "ENVIRONMENT" section below for a reference on how the locale is set if this profile component is not used. It also has program: default switches Sets default switches to be used whenever the mh program program is invoked. For example, one could override the “Editor:” profile component when replying to messages by adding a component such as: repl: -editor /bin/ed (profile, no defaults) Perhaps that should mention programs that don't read their .mh_profile entry? Or say how to check if a program does using the program's own man page? My fallible manual scan of man pages suggests these have `None' or similar under the `PROFILE COMPONENTS' section. ap dp fmttest mh-mkstemp msgchk post These pages don't have a `PROFILE COMPONENTS' section. mhical mhmail mhn (deprecated) rcvdist rcvpack rcvtty slocal -- Cheers, Ralph. https://plus.google.com/+RalphCorderoy -- nmh-workers https://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/nmh-workers
