 +<​code>​
 +  COMMAND: page[/​noeval] <​players>​=[<​prefix>​]<​message>​
 +           ​page[/​noeval] =[<​prefix>​]<​message>​
 +           ​page[/​noeval] [<​prefix>​]<​message>​
 +           page <​players>​=
 +           page
 +</​code>​
 +This command sends <​message>​ to <​players>​. ​ The second and third form sends the given message to the same <​players>​ given on the previous page command. The second form is useful when the message itself contains an equal sign.
 +
 +The fourth form indicates that you are paging sans-message. ​ The format is somewhat more appealing than an empty message.
 +
 +The last form reports to you the list of players you paged last time.
 +
 +<​Players>​ is one or more player names or aliases delimited by any combination of spaces or commas. ​ Double-quotes can be used around any name containing spaces. ​ A player'​s name may also be any unique prefix of players who are currently on the WHO list.  Any duplicate players from your list are removed.
 +
 +
 +Examples:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +    > page me=Test
 +    Foo pages: Test
 +    You paged Foo with '​Test'​.
 +
 +    > page me=:tests.
 +    From afar, Foo tests.
 +    Long distance to Foo: Foo tests.
 +
 +    > page me=;'s character tests.
 +    From afar, Foo's character tests.
 +    Long distance to Foo: Foo's character tests.
 +</​code>​
 +
 +If your Idle attribute is set to something, then it is sent to anyone who successfully pages you after you have become idle by the period set by your @idletimeout. ​ This is useful for when you are away from your terminal for a short while.
 +
 +Also, you can selectively disable pages from certain players with the '​@lock/​page'​ command (players must pass the lock in order to page you). If someone cannot page you, they will be sent a message including your Reject attribute if they try.  If someone pages you while you are not connected, they are sent a message including your Away attribute.
 +
 +You can also page many players at one time, where all the players you page will see the message.
 +
 +Example:
 +<​code>​
 +    > p Foo, Bar, "Long John Silver"​= Hi
 +    You paged (Foo, Bar, Long John Silver) with '​Hi'​.
 +    To (Foo, Bar), Widget pages: Hi
 +</​code>​
 +
 +You only need to type the player-list once, then the next time you page that player or set of players, you can abbreviate it with:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +    "p :​waves." ​ or,
 +    "p I'm back."
 +</​code>​
 +
 +This will work until you page another player or list of players.
