#UNIX : Send Messages to Logged Users


If you are used to play with multi users servers and you feel bored you can start a random chat with a logged user sending him a message (ok, actually it can be much more useful 😛 ) with the following command:

write username tty

where username and tty can be found using who command.
Then you can write the message and end it pressing Ctrl+D.
