write: you have write permission turned off.
even though i am trying this in root i am getting this error and i have seen in /etc/bin/write. the executable permission is given for this.

Pavan,
When you post a message please include details including the operating system that you are using, and the version of that operating system. There are many unix variants and people being very busy, they often don't have the time to trawl through your previous messages to find out what OS and version you might be using.
Here is a very good article that you may be interested in reading that could help you get more useful responses to your questions.
Thanks.
aaaaaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbb
