    Command:

    wall

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           wall [-n] [ message ]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Wall  sends a message to everybody logged in with their mesg(1) permis-
           sion set to yes.  The message can be given as an argument to  wall,  or
           it can be sent to wall's standard input.  When using the standard input
           from a terminal, the message should be  terminated  with  the  EOF  key
           (usually Control-D).
    
           The length of the message is limited to 20 lines.  For every invocation
           of wall a  notification  will  be  written  to  syslog,  with  facility
           LOG_USER and level LOG_INFO.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -n     Suppresses  the  normal  banner  printed by wall, changing it to
                  "Remote broadcast message".  This option is only  available  for
                  root   if  wall  is  installed  set-group-id,  and  is  used  by
                  rpc.walld(8).
    
    
    

    ENVIRONMENT

           Wall ignores the TZ variable - the time printed in the banner is  based
           on the system's local time.
    
    
    

    SEE ALSO

           mesg(1), rpc.rwalld(8).
