If the switch -component is given, then the component name is displayed along with the profile components value. This can be disabled with the switch -nocomponent.
If more than one component is specified in the components list, then the switch -component is on by default. If only one component is specified, then the switch -nocomponent is on by default.
If -all is specified, then all components in the nmh profile are displayed and other arguments are ignored.
