NAME

       away - terminal locking program

SYNOPSIS

       away [OPTIONS] message [...]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       -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.

FILES

       ~/.awayrc
              Per user configuration file. See awayrc(5) for further details.

       /etc/pam.d/away
              The Linux-PAM configuration file.
