NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       uupick - Accepts or rejects files transmitted to a user by

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       uupick [-ssystem]

       The uupick command accepts or rejects files that the  uuto
       command has transmitted to a designated user ID.

STANDARDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Interfaces  documented  on  this reference page conform to
       industry standards as follows:

       uupick:  XCU5.0

       Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information
 about industry standards and associated tags.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Searches   /usr/spool/uucppublic/receive/user/system  only
       for files sent from the  specified  system.  System  names
       must contain only ASCII characters.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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
       directory] ?

       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.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The uupick utility is marked LEGACY in XCU Issue 5.
