NAME
     wall -- write a message to users

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 messages.

     -g      Send messages to users in this group.  This option may be specified multiple times,
	     and any user in any of the specified groups will receive the message.

SEE ALSO

HISTORY
     A wall command appeared in Version 7 AT&T UNIX.  Support for -g was added in NetBSD 2.0
     (from OpenBSD 2.0).
