Hi aahlawat,

If memory serves me you can use the WALL command to send a msg to all logged in users or the WRITE command to send to a specific user.

God Bless

The actual command is 'wall'.  Case matters on Unix.

"wall" is the command ,
if you are using it for private computer as in a company or your own then its fine
but in public access computers , use of "wall" is mostly considered a nuisance ( akin to spamming)  and
is almost always disabled for normal users.
