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)
