    Re: difference between wall, talk and write cmds

    Talk command is used for chatting with another online user in the same network. It opens a window where both parties can exchange messages. All users logged on the network can use this command.

    Write is to send a short message to another online user. It does not keep a window open at both side as the write command do, so not suitable for continuous chatting. All users can use this also.

    Wall is for sending short message not to a single user/group but all online users in the network. Only admins can use this command. Write can be blocked by each user but wall cant.
