OPLEAS allows an operator to talk to users one at a time. Requests for
contact with the operator are queued; thus the user can type a request
for operator action and know that the request will be received even if
the operator is currently busy. OPLEAS also handles the operator
dialogue for the EXEC TMOUNT command.
When you are available to answer user and TMOUNT requests, run OPLEASE,
specifying an ID that is known to the users of your installation. When
a user runs PLEASE, you will will receive one of two types of messages:
If the user wants an answer, you will receive a message of the form
[PLEASE: User xxx Job nn Line yy Received at hh:mm:ss]
where xxx is the user's logged-in directory, nn is the user's job
number, and yy is the user's line number. Whatever you type is sent to
the user until one of you types ESCAPE or CTRL/Z.
If the user does not want an answer, you wil receive a message of the
[PLEASE: One-way sent at hh:mm:ss]
[User xxx Line yy Received at hh:mm:ss]
You cannot answer this message.
If the user makes a TMOUNT request, you will receive a message of the
[TMOUNT: User xxx Job nn Line yy Received at hh:mm:ss]
