SYNOPSISsendmsg [ -46vVfrmMl ] [ -u 'from' ] [ -s 'message' ] recipient
DESCRIPTIONsendmsg sends a one line text message to the terminal(s) of the specified recipient.
On the receiving site there must be a SAFT-server (Simple Asynchronous File Transfer) installed, like the sendfiled and the recipients terminal must be writeable.
The recipient address can be specified as:
- a local user or a sendfile alias (see below), e.g.: framstag
- [email protected]
- an user on a remote host, e.g.: [email protected]
- like above, but in URL-syntax, e.g.: saft://bofh.belwue.de/framstag
like above, but with alternate SAFT-port, e.g.: saft://bofh.belwue.de:4870/framstag
- -4, -6
- Explicitly force IPv4 or IPv6 connections. By default, the program will try to resolve the name given, and choose the appropriate protocol automatically. If resolving a host name returns both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, sendmsg will try to use the adresses in the order they are returned by the resolver.
- Verbose mode: show SAFT protocol messages.
- Show version information and exit.
- Force sending of messages and ignore tty (re)settings.
- Reply to last received message.
- Receive messages only on this tty. This is the default.
- Allow receiving messages on other ttys.
- Allow sending of multiline messages messages.
- -s 'message'
- Send directly message.
- -u 'from'
- Set sender to from instead of $LOGNAME.
Quiet mode: print no transfer messages.
