COUNTMAIL(6)                     Games Manual                     COUNTMAIL(6)

NAME
     countmail -- be obnoxious about how much mail you have

SYNOPSIS
     countmail

DESCRIPTION
     The countmail program counts your mail and tells you about it rather
     obnoxiously.

SEE ALSO
     from(1)

HISTORY
     The countmail program first appeared in NetBSD 1.3.

AUTHORS
     countmail was first written by Noah Friedman <friedmanATsplode.com> in
     1993.  This version was written by Charles M. Hannum
     <mycroftATNetBSD.org>.

CAVEATS
     The read loop is horrendously slow on every shell implementation tried.
     countmail uses from(1) and wc(1) instead, though these are not shell
     builtins.
