amin - notify writers that you are busy


amin [-ynesp] command [args...]


Amin is used when you don't want to be written while running a command. It runs the
command given normally. If your message permissions (see mesg(1)) are off, it does
nothing much else. If your messages are on, people writing you with write(1) will be
warned that you are running that command and will be given the opportunity to change their
minds about writing you.

The -n option may be used to turn your messages entirely off for the duration of the
execution of command. People writing you will get "Permission denied". The -y option
turns your message permissions on for the duration of the execution of the command. The
-e may be used after either -n or -y to indicate that the logins listed in the .yeswrite
or the .nowrite files respectively are exceptions to the message permissions set. The
default is -s which leaves your message permissions in their original state. In any case,
after the command is complete, your permissions will be restored to the original state.

The -p flag causes all telegrams sent to you while the command is running to be saved.
They are displayed as soon as the command is complete. If used with the -n flag, writes
are refused, but telegrams are still saved.

If you have designated yourself as a helper, you will still be marked on the finger(1)
output as a helper while you are running amin but people doing ``write help'' will not be
connected to you, even if you have the helper flag set to ``Y''.
