Write a message to users.

      wall [-g group] [file]

   -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.

The wall utility 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.

The wall utility does not recognize multibyte characters.
