What is Finger?

Finger is a Macintosh implementation of the Un*x Finger protocol that allows you to finger anyone in the world.  Finger is AppleScriptable and Recordable.

To use Finger, first launch Finger and choose Finger. from the File menu.  Enter the machine name and (optionally) the user name of the person you wish to finger (Note: If you have used unix, you may prefer to type user@machine into either field (and if you do prefer to do this, go ahead, cuz it will work :-)).  You can choose to query either a Finger server or a Whois Server by clicking the Whois checkbox.  Then Click the Finger button.  Finger will add any successful addresses to the Finger hierarchical menu.  You can save this menu by choosing Save Finger Menu from the File menu.  

You can also control Finger using AppleScript.
