 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      uuto, uupick - public UNIX system to UNIX system file copy

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      uuto [options] source-files destination

      uupick [-s system]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      uuto sends source-files to destination.  uuto uses the uucp facility
      to send files (see uucp(1)), while allowing 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 in uucp(1) manual entry).  user is the login name of
      someone on the specified system.

      uuto recognizes the following options:

           -p      Copy the source file into the spool directory
                   immediately, and send the copy.

           -m      Send mail to the requester when the copy is complete.

      The files (or sub-trees if directories are specified) are sent to
      PUBDIR on system, where PUBDIR is the UUCP public directory
      (/var/spool/uucppublic).  Specifically the files are sent to


      The recipient is notified by electronic mail when the files arrive.

      uupick accepts or rejects the files transmitted to the recipient.
      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 (current
                           directory is default).  Note that, if the current

                           specify any parameter with m.  A construction
                           such as m. is erroneous, and results in loss of

           q               Stop.

           EOT             (control-D) Same as q.

           !command        Escape to the shell to execute command.

           *               Print a command summary.

      uupick invoked with the -ssystem option searches only the PUBDIR for
      files sent from system.

 WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]
      To send files that begin with a dot (such as .profile) the filename
      must contain a corresponding dot.  For example: .profile, .prof*, and
      .profil? are correct, whereas *prof* and ?profile are incorrect.
