UUTO(1C)							      UUTO(1C)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     uuto, uupick - public UNIX-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(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.

     q		     Stop.

     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.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

     PUBDIR    /var/spool/uucppublic	   public directory

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     mail(1), uucp(1C),	uustat(1C), uux(1C), uucleanup(1M)

WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     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.
