From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing: (http://www.foldoc.org/, Editor Denis Howe)

1. /enkw/ or /enk/ ENQuire. The mnemonic for ASCII character 5.

2. An on-line convention for querying someone's availability. After opening a chat connection to someone apparently in heavy hack mode, one might type "SYN SYN ENQ?" (the SYNs representing notional synchronisation bytes), and expect a return of ACK or NAK depending on whether or not the person felt interruptible.

Compare ping, finger.
