UUTO(1C) Communication Commands UUTO(1C)


NAME


uuto, uupick - public UNIX-to-UNIX system file copy

SYNOPSIS


uuto [-mp] source-file... destination


uupick [-s system]


DESCRIPTION


uuto
uuto sends source-file to destination. uuto uses the uucp(1C) facility to
send files, while it allows the local system to control the file access.
A source-file name is a path name on your machine. Destination has the
form:


system[!system] ... !user


where system is taken from a list of system names that uucp knows about.
User is the login name of someone on the specified system.


The files (or sub-trees if directories are specified) are sent to PUBDIR
on system, where PUBDIR is a public directory defined in the uucp source.
By default, this directory is /var/spool/uucppublic. Specifically the
files are sent to


PUBDIR/receive/user/mysystem/files.


The recipient is notified by mail(1) of the arrival of files.

uupick
uupick accepts or rejects the files transmitted to the user.
Specifically, uupick searches PUBDIR for files destined for the user. For
each entry (file or directory) found, the following message is printed on
standard output:


from system sysname: [file file-name] [dir dirname] ?


uupick then reads a line from standard input to determine the disposition
of the file:

<new-line>
Go to next entry.


d
Delete the entry.


m [ dir ]
Move the entry to named directory dir. If dir is not
specified as a complete path name (in which $HOME is
legitimate), a destination relative to the current
directory is assumed. If no destination is given, the
default is the current directory.


a [ dir ]
Same as m above, except it moves all the files sent
from system.


p
Print the content of the file.


q
Stop.


EOT (control-d)
Same as q.


!command
Escape to the shell to do command.


*
Print a command summary.


OPTIONS


uuto
The following options are supported by uuto:

-m

-p
Copy the source file into the spool directory before transmission.


uupick
The following option is supported by uupick:

-s system

OPERANDS


The following operands are supported for uuto:

destination
A string of the form:

system-name!user

where system-name is taken from a list of system names
that uucp knows about; see uuname. The argument user is
the login name of someone on the specified system. The
destination system-name can also be a list of names such
as

system-name!system-name!... !system-name!user

in which case, an attempt is made to send the file via the
specified route to the destination. Care should be taken
to ensure that intermediate nodes in the route are willing
to forward information.


source-file
A pathname of a file on the local system to be copied to
destination.

The following files are incorrect:


*prof* ?profile
