UNIX/LINUX Command – talk

Last updated Apr 27, 2021

NAME

talk—Talk to another user

SYNOPSIS

talk person [ttyname]

DESCRIPTION

talk is a visual communication program that copies lines from your terminal to that of another user.

The following options are available:

person If you wish to talk to someone on your own machine, then person is just the person’s login name. If you wish to talk to a user on another host, then person is of the form user@host.
ttyname

If you wish to talk to a user who is logged in more than once, the ttyname argument may be used to indicate the appropriate terminal name, where ttyname is of the form

ttyxx

When first called, talk sends the message Message from TalkDaemon@his_machine…:
talk: connection requested by your_name@your_machine
talk: respond with: talk your_name@your_machine

to the user you wish to talk to. At this point, the recipient of the message should reply by typing talk your_name@your_machine

It doesn’t matter from which machine the recipient replies, as long as his login name is the same. Once communication isestablished, the two parties may type simultaneously, with their output appearing in separate windows. Typing control-L ˆ L will cause the screen to be reprinted, while your erase, kill, and word kill characters will behave normally. To exit, just type your interrupt character; talk then moves the cursor to the bottom of the screen and restores the terminal to its previous state.

Permission to talk may be denied or granted by use of the mesg 1 command. At the outset, talking is allowed. Certain commands, in particular nroff 1 and pr 1, disallow messages in order to prevent messy output.
