    Command:

    mesg

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           mesg [y|n]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Mesg  controls  the  access to your terminal by others.  It's typically
           used to allow or disallow other users to write to  your  terminal  (see
           write(1)).
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           y      Allow write access to your terminal.
    
           n      Disallow write access to your terminal.
    
           If no option is given, mesg prints out the current access state of your
           terminal.
    
    
    

    NOTES

           Mesg assumes that its standard input is  connected  to  your  terminal.
           That  also  means  that  if  you  are logged in multiple times, you can
           get/set the mesg status of other sessions by  using  redirection.   For
           example "mesg n < /dev/pts/46".
