NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       uuto  -  Copies  public  files between systems using local
       file access control

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       uuto [-mp] source... user

       The uuto command copies one or more source files from  one
       system to a specified user on another system.

STANDARDS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

       uuto():  XCU5.0

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

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Notifies  the  sender  by  mail when the copy is complete.
       Copies the source file to the spool directory on the local
       system.  The source file resides in the spooling directory
       for a set period of time (defined in the uusched  program)
       before  the  uucp  command  calls the uucico daemon, which
       actually transfers the copy to the public directory on the
       specified  remote  system.   The  default is to transfer a
       source file directly to the specified user.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The uuto command calls the uucp  command  for  the  actual
       file  transfer,  but uuto enables the recipient to use the
       uupick command to handle  the  transferred  files  on  the
       local system.

       The  source argument is the name of the files on the local
       system, or a pathname to the files on the system that runs
       the  command.  The user is a specific user ID.  This entry
       has the following format: system!user

       where system is the name of a remote system  connected  to
       the local system, and user is the login name of the recipient
 of the transferred files on the specified system.

       When copying a file from one user to another user  on  the
       local  system,  omit  the system entry; the destination is
       simply the login name of the user  to  whom  the  file  is
       being sent.

       The  uuto  command sends files to /usr/spool/uucppublic on
       the designated system; this is a  public  directory.   The
       command   also  creates  an  additional  directory  called
       receive (if it does not already exist), plus the directory
       /user/system  under  receive.   The  full pathnames to the
       copied files are of the following  form,  /usr/spool/uucppublic/receive/user/system/file

       where  user  is the login name of the recipient and system
       is the name of the system from which file was copied.

       Once the copied file is in  the  receive  directory,  uuto
       notifies the recipient by rmail that the file has arrived.
       The  recipient  then  issues  the  uupick  command,  which
       searches the public directory for files sent to the specified
 user ID, displaying the message that  file  file  has
       arrived  from system system for each file it locates.  The
       user then enters one of the uupick  file-handling  options
       to  delete  the file, move it to another directory, and so

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The uuto utility is marked LEGACY in XCU Issue 5.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       To copy the file /usr/bin/file1 on local  system  hera  to
       user  karen  on  remote  system zeus, enter the following:
       uuto /usr/bin/file1 zeus!karen

              The file /usr/bin/file1 is sent  to  remote  system
              zeus,  and  is  stored there at /usr/spool/uucppublic/receive/karen/hera/file1.
  To copy a file to  a
              user  on a remote system and receive a message back
              telling you if the  source  file  was  successfully
              copied, enter: uuto -m /usr/bin/file2 zeus!karen

              The  file  /usr/bin/file2 is sent to the user karen
              on the remote system zeus at the same  location  as
              in  Example  1,  and  a message confirming that the
              copy was successful is returned to the sender.   To
              copy  a  file to another user on local system hera,
              enter: uuto /usr/bin/file3 ron

              The file /usr/bin/file3 is sent to the user ron  on
              the local system, and is stored in /usr/spool/uucppublic/receive/ron/hera/file3.
 No mail  message  is
              sent to the recipient in a local transfer.


       The  following  environment variables affect the execution
       of uuto: [Tru64 UNIX]  Specifies the flow control used  on
       the  connection.   Permitted values are: HW (hardware), SW
       (software), HSW (hardware and  software),  and  NONE.  The
       uugetty  on  the remote system must also use the same flow
       control.  Provides a default value for the  internationalization
 variables that are unset or null. If LANG is unset
       or null, the corresponding value from the  default  locale
       is  used.   If  any  of the internationalization variables
       contains an invalid setting, the  utility  behaves  as  if
       none  of the variables had been defined.  If set to a nonempty
 string value, overrides the values of all the  other
       internationalization variables.  Determines the locale for
       the interpretation of sequences of bytes of text  data  as
       characters  (for example, single-byte as opposed to multibyte
 characters in arguments and input files).  Determines
       the  locale  that  should be used to affect the format and
       contents of diagnostic messages written to standard error.
       Determines the location of message catalogues for the processing
  of  LC_MESSAGES.   [Tru64  UNIX]  Specifies   the
       amount of time (in seconds) for uucico to try to establish
       a connection before it times out.  A  value  of  0  (zero)
       indicates an unlimited amount of time.
