Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information
about industry standards and associated tags.
Searches /usr/spool/uucppublic/receive/user/system only
for files sent from the specified system. System names
must contain only ASCII characters.
When the files have arrived, the rmail command notifies
the recipient, who then issues the uupick command to
receive and handle the files.
Specifically, uupick searches the public directory on the
local system for files with some form of the following
where user is the user ID of the user issuing the command.
For each entry (file or directory) found, uupick displays
the following message: from system: [file file] [dir
The uupick command then waits for a response from standard
input to determine the disposition of the file or directory.
Issuing the uupick command with the appropriate
file-handling option completes the transfer.
File-Handling Options [Toc] [Back]
After notifying the user that a file was sent from system,
uupick displays a ? (question mark), prompting for one of
the following file-handling options: Displays all filehandling
options. Moves on to the next entry in the
receive directory. Moves all uuto files currently in the
receive directory into a specified directory on the local
system. The default is the current working directory.
Use a full or relative pathname to specify a different
directory. Deletes the specified file. Moves the specified
file to a specified directory. If directory is not
specified as a complete pathname, a destination relative
to the current directory is assumed. If directory is not
specified at all, the default is the current working
directory on the local system. Displays the contents of
the file on the terminal screen. Stops processing and
exits from uupick. Same as q. Escapes to a shell to run
the specified command. After the command executes, it
returns automatically to uupick so you can continue to
handle the uuto files in the receive directory.
The uupick utility is marked LEGACY in XCU Issue 5.
