FROM(1) 			   BSD General Commands Manual				  FROM(1)

     from -- print names of those who have sent mail

     from [-c] [-f file] [-s sender] [user]

     The from utility prints out the mail header lines from the invoker's mailbox.

     The following options are available:

     -c      Just print a count of messages and exit.

     -f file
	     The supplied file is examined instead of the invoker's mailbox.  If the -f option is
	     used, the user argument should not be used.  Read from standard input if file name
	     ``-'' is given.

     -s sender
	     Only mail from addresses containing the supplied string are printed.

     If user is given, the user's mailbox is examined instead of the invoker's own mailbox.
     (Privileges are required.)

     MAIL    If set, the location of the invoker's mailbox.  Otherwise, the default in /var/mail
	     is used.


     biff(1), mail(1)

     The from command appeared in 3.0BSD.
