ANNO(1)                                                   ANNO(1)

NAME
       anno - annotate messages

SYNOPSIS
       anno [+folder] [msgs] [-component field] [-inplace]
            [-noinplace] [-date] [-nodate] [-text body]
            [-version] [-help]

DESCRIPTION
       Anno  annotates the specified messages in the named folder
       using the field and body.

       Usually, annotation is performed  by  the  commands  dist,
       forw,  and  repl,  if  they  are given the `-anno' switch.
       This allows you to keep track  of  your  distribution  of,
       forwarding of, and replies to a message.

       By  using  anno,  you can perform arbitrary annotations of
       your own.  Each message selected will  be  annotated  with
       the lines

           field: date
           field: body

       The `-nodate' switch inhibits the date annotation, leaving
       only the body annotation.

       If a `-component field' is  not  specified  when  anno  is
       invoked,  anno  will prompt the user for the name of field
       for the annotation.

       The field specified should be a  valid  822-style  message
       field name, which means that it should consist of alphanu-
       merics (or dashes) only.  The body specified is  arbitrary
       text.

       Normally anno does the annotation inplace in order to pre-
       serve any links to the message.  You may  change  this  by
       using  the  `-noinplace'  switch.  ^$HOME/.mh_profile~^The
       user profile ^Path:~^To determine the user's nmh directory
       ^Current-Folder:~^To  find the default current folder dist
       (1), forw (1), repl (1) `+folder' defaults to the  current
       folder  `msgs'  defaults  to  cur  `-inplace' `-date' If a
       folder is given, it will become the current  folder.   The
       first message annotated will become the current message.
