MOTD(5) Linux Programmer's Manual MOTD(5)

NAME

     motd - message of the day

DESCRIPTION

     The  contents of /etc/motd are displayed by login(1) after a successful
     login but just before it executes the login shell.
     The abbreviation "motd" stands for "message of the day", and this  file
     has  been  traditionally  used  for exactly that (it requires much less
     disk space than mail to all users).

FILES

     /etc/motd

SEE ALSO

     login(1), issue(5)
