NAME

       spwrite - write messages

SYNOPSIS

       spwrite user [ ... ]

DESCRIPTION

       Spwrite sends messages to users' terminals in response to the "-w" and "-A" options of
       gspl-pr(1). It is used in preference to the write(1) command as this picks just one (and
       usually the wrong one!) of the terminals at which the user may be logged in, and does not
       display a suitable name for the originator of messages.

       Spwrite takes a list of one or more users as arguments. It sends the text on standard
       input to each user's terminal. The message is mailed to users who cannot be reached. This
       facility is available for use in your own software if you wish.

FILES

       int-config message file
