DESCRIPTION

  Use the mhpath command to display the	full pathname of the specified

  current folder.

  name of the specified	message. You can also specify a	number of messages,
  or a range of	messages. If the top of	the range that you specify is greater
  than the last	message	in the folder, mhpath displays as much of the speci-
  fied range as	possible.

  Additionally mhpath can take a keyword or a sequence name. The following
  keywords are acceptable:

  first
      The first	message	in the folder.

  last
      The last message in the folder.

  new The message after	the last message in the	folder.	You cannot use new as
      part of a	message	range.

  cur The current message in the folder.

  prev
      The message before the current message.
