SYNOPSIS
     wall [-g group] [file]

DESCRIPTION
     wall displays the contents of file or, by default, its standard input, on
     the terminals of all currently logged in users.

     Only the super-user can write on the terminals of users who have chosen
     to deny messages or are using a program which automatically denies mes-
     sages.

             fied multiple times, and any user in any of the specified groups
             will receive the message.
