away - terminal locking program
away [OPTIONS] message [...]
away is a simple program that locks your terminal, checks for new mail in any given number of mailboxes, and lets other users know why you are inactive.
-c, --mail Enable checking of mail. -C, --nomail Disable checking of mail. -f, --rcfile=FILE Specify an alternative configuration file instead of the default ~/.awayrc file. -F, --norcfile Ignore user configuration file. -h, --help Display help. -m, --message Execute as the remainder of the command line, effectively stripping off the executable name and additional switches. -p, --persist Continue checking for new mail as long as there is at least one mailbox that has not received new mail. -P, --nopersist Stop checking mail if any mailbox is found to have new mail. -t, --time=SECONDS Set the number of second that away sleeps before performing its background tasks. Presently, the only background task that away will perform is the checking of mailboxes. -T, --notime Ignore any options to set the time interval and use the default number of seconds. -v, --version Display version information.
~/.awayrc Per user configuration file. See awayrc(5) for further details. /etc/pam.d/away The Linux-PAM configuration file.
