Does anyone know of a way to intercept ALL messages sent to a shell,
for example messages (msg command) sent from other users and messages
coming from daemons?
The tape mount command on my SVR3.1 system ('tape') returns after the
mount request is queued --- I need to wait for a "tape ready" message
before proceeding in my scripts.
Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. I have access to most of the
standard Unix & C/C++ programming books and docs, but don't know what
"buzzwords" to look up.
