uuto, uupick - public UNIX-to-UNIX system file copy
uuto [ options ] source-files destination
uupick [ -s system ]
uuto sends source-files 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:
where system is taken from a list of system names that uucp knows about
(see uuname). User is the login name of someone on the specified system.
Two options are available:
-p Copy the source file into the spool directory before
-m Send mail to the sender when the copy is complete.
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
The destined recipient is notified by mail(1) of the arrival of files.
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 the standard output:
from system: [file file-name] [dir dirname] ?
Uupick then reads a line from the standard input to determine the
disposition of the file:
<new-line> Go on 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 except moving all the files sent from system.
p Print the content of the file.
EOT (control-d) Same as q.
!command Escape to the shell to do command.
* Print a command summary.
Uupick invoked with the -ssystem option will only search the PUBDIR for
files sent from system.
PUBDIR /var/spool/uucppublic public directory
mail(1), uucp(1C), uustat(1C), uux(1C), uucleanup(1M)
In order to send files that begin with a dot (e.g., .profile) the files
must by qualified with a dot. For example: .profile, .prof*, .profil?
are correct; whereas *prof*, ?profile are incorrect.
