Communication and Status Utilities
This package contains 2 utilities:
1. flon -- lists your friends who are logged on
2. to -- sends a short message to another user
flon simply uses the ~/.friends file to instruct it on which
users to display. Flon can also act like a BSD style who(1),
if invoked with the -w option or from a symlink named 'who'.
to is rather like write(1), except that it accepts input as
command line arguments rather than on the standard input.
It uses ~/.torc for configuration, and can be configured
to autoreply to messages in different ways depending on
whether you're logged in or not or if your terminal is
idle, and can also exclude individual users from sending
messages to your terminal.
