uupick(1C)




NAME

     uuto, uupick - public UNIX-to-UNIX system file copy


SYNOPSIS

     uuto [-mp] source-file... destination

     uupick [-s system]


DESCRIPTION

  uuto
     uuto  sends  source-file  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:

          system[!system] ... !user

     where system is taken from a list of system names that  uucp
     knows  about.   User  is  the  login  name of someone on the
     specified system.

     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

          PUBDIR/receive/user/mysystem/files.

     The recipient is notified  by  mail(1)  of  the  arrival  of
     files.

  uupick
     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 fol-
     lowing message is printed on standard output:

          from system sysname: [file file-name] [dir dirname] ?

     uupick then reads a line from standard  input  to  determine
     the disposition of the file:

     <new-line>
           Go 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 above, except it moves 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.


OPTIONS

  uuto
     The following options are supported by uuto:

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

     -p    Copy the source file into the spool  directory  before
           transmission.

  uupick
     The following option is supported by uupick:

     -s system
           Search only the PUBDIR for files sent from system.


OPERANDS

     The following operands are supported for  uuto:

     destination
           A string of the form:

           system-name!user

     where system-name is taken from a list of system names  that
     uucp knows about; see uuname. The argument user is the login
     name of someone on the  specified  system.  The  destination
     system-name can also be a list of names such as

           system-name!system-name!... !system-name!user
           in which case, an attempt is made to send the file via
           the specified route to the destination. Care should be
           taken to ensure that intermediate nodes in  the  route
           are willing to forward information.

     source-file
           A pathname of a file on the local system to be  copied
           to destination.

NOTES

     In order to send files that begin with a dot (for  instance,
     .profile),  the  files  must   be qualified with a dot.  For
     example, the following files are correct:

                    .profile        .prof*       .profil?

     The following files are incorrect:

                    *prof*        ?profile
