It's meant to be used from other programs. The following is
pseudo-code to give you an idea of how I'd use it from Gambas.
(Note: I don't think it's safe to assume that "mail" will be
installed on any system or that it will know how to send
Internet mail, so it may be safer just to open a socket to an
SMTP server, assuming you can get the user's ISP's mail server
myproc = Shell "mail -s \"test message from sid\"
mwebb at ...1362..."
print #myproc, "This is the body of the mail\r\n"
To simulate that behavior from the command line, when mail is
just sitting there waiting for you to type control-C, type a few
lines and then press control-D on a blank line to (try to) send
