       nsend - Send messages to users or groups

       nsend [ -h ] [ -S server ] [ -U user name ] [ -P password | -n ] [ -C ] [ -a ] -i objectID
       | -c connNum[,...] | { [ -t recipient type ] -o recipient name | recipient name } message

       With nsend, you can send messages to the user's workstations.

       nsend looks up the file $HOME/.nwclient to find a file server, a user name and possibly	a
       password. See nwclient(5) for more information. Please note that the access permissions of
       .nwclient MUST be 0600, for security reasons.

       recipient name
	  recipient name is either the NetWare name of the user to receive  the  message  or  the
	  name of an existing user group on that server. You can use wildcards in this specifica-

       -o recipient name
	  Specifies recipient's name. This can specify user or group.

       -t recipent type
	  Specifies recipient's type.

       -c connNum[,...]
	  Specifies connection numbers of recipients. You can use this option  as  workaround  to
	  deliver messages to directory services users.

       -i userID
	  Specifies  recipient's object ID. You can use this option as workaround to deliver mes-
	  sages to directory services users.

	  message is the message to be sent. Please note that this has to  be  a  single  command
	  line	argument.  If  you want to send a message that contains spaces, you have to quote
	  them on the command line.  For example, to annoy your system administrator, you  should

	     nsend supervisor 'I know how this works!'

	  Program  first  searches  (wildcards allowed) bindery with recipients name and type. If
	  user is found, message is sent to this user, if group is found, message is sent to this
	  group.  Other  object types are ignored. If no suitable object was found in this phase,
	  connection list for specified object is retrieved (no wildcards allowed) and message is
	  sent to this object (including print servers and so on). No expansions on group is done
	  this time.

	  By default, nsend prepends 'From ....' text to message. You can suppress this by adding
	  -a to command line.

       -S server
	  server is the name of the server you want to use.

       -U user name
	  If the user name your NetWare administrator gave to you differs from your unix user-id,
	  you should use -U to tell the server about your NetWare user name.

       -P password
	  You may want to give the password required by the  server  on  the  command  line.  You
	  should be careful about using passwords in scripts.

	  -n should be given if specified user does not have password.

	  If neither -n nor -P are given, nsend prompts for a password.

	  By  default,	passwords  are converted to uppercase before they are sent to the server,
	  because most servers require this. You can turn off this conversion by -C.

       Directory services connection are not supported yet.
       Options -c, -i and -o cannot be used together.
       If user is specified multiple times (using wildcards in group specification or by  repeat-
       ing same number in -c), message is delivered multiple times to him.
