Terminal locking program

Terminal locking program
from version 0.9.5-3

Description

Away is a simple program that locks your terminal, checks for new mail in any given number of mailboxes, and lets others know why you are inactive.

Away puts the message specified why your are away into the output of the 'w' command, so that users looking for you can see that and why you are away (and not only idle for some time)

Away will also notify you if you have new mail. By default Away only checks for mail in a user's $MAIL file, but by using the awayrc file, a user can configure any given number of mailboxes to be checked.

Away also uses PAM to lock your terminal in the way xlock locks an X11 session.
