    NAME

    biff
    
     - be notified if mail arrives and who it is from
    
     
    

    SYNOPSIS

    biff [ny ]  

    DESCRIPTION

    Biff informs the system whether you want to be notified when mail arrives during the current terminal session.

    Options supported by biff

    n
    Disables notification.
    y
    Enables notification.

    When mail notification is enabled, the header and first few lines of the message will be printed on your screen whenever mail arrives. A ``biff y '' command is often included in the file .login or .profile to be executed at each login.

    Biff operates asynchronously via the comsat(8) service. If that service is not enabled, biff will not do anything. In that case, or for synchronous notification, use the MAIL variable of sh(1) or the mail variable of csh(1).  

    SEE ALSO

    csh(1), mail(1), sh(1), comsat(8)  

    HISTORY

    The biff command appeared in BSD 4.0  

    BUGS

    su(1), and biff don't seem to get on too well. This is probably due to the tty still being owned by the person using su. This can result in ``Permission denied '' messages when attempting to change the biff status of your session.

    Please report bugs to netbug@ftp.uk.linux.org including diffs/patches, compiler error logs or as complete a bug report as is possible.
