sending messages trough the console


Hi, I would like to know how to send a message to another user who's also in my computer...

Like the "net send" command in windows...., but trough the console....


Thanks in advance...

I ahve never used it but i think that "wall" might be what you want. Try "man wall" --- there doesn't seem to be much there but it's a start. Good luck.

Thanks, that's kind of what I wanted..., the only problem is that I can't send a message to only one user..., "wall" sends the message to everyone....

But as you said, it's a start..., does someone has another command to do what I want??

Thanks again!
