WRITE(1) Commands and Applications WRITE(1)
write - write messages to a user's terminal
write username [message]
write writes messages to all terminals belonging to username. If an
optional message is included on the command line, then that message is
the one sent to the user. If no message is included on the command
line, write takes input from standard input until a blank line is
encountered. It sends each line of input as it is received.
write returns in error if the user does not exist or if the user is not
currently signed on. Executing write with no arguments or with an
option argument returns a usage message.
Old versions of the GNO multiuser package are incompatible with this
version of write; use write version 1.0 if you have not updated the
