SYNOPSIS

#include <rpc/rpc.h>
#include <rpcsvc/rwall.h>

enum clnt_stat rwall(char *host, char *msg);


PROTOCOL

DESCRIPTION


These routines require that the rpc.rwalld(1M) daemon be configured and
available on the remote system indicated by host.


rwall() executes wall(1M) on host. The rpc.rwalld process on host
prints msg to all users logged on to that system. rwall() returns
RPC_SUCCESS if it was successful; otherwise a enum clnt_stat is returned
which can be displayed using clnt_perrno(3NSL).
