notice - Display a notice




Notice is used to display a file that resides in the $/etc/notices directory. The file displayed is the name of the command. For example, if the notice command were entered at the shell, $/etc/notices/notice would be displayed. If the notice program were copied to $/bin/readme, then by typing readme in the shell, the $/etc/notices/readme file would be shown.

This program is useful for temporarily replacing other programs so that when a user tries to invoke what appears to be an application, the notice is displayed instead.
