uuto, uupick --
public UNIX-to-UNIX system file copy
uuto [ -mp ] source-file ...
uupick [ -s system ]
uuto uses the
facility to send the source-files to
destination, while it allows the local system to control
file access. source-file is a pathname of a file on your
machine. destination has the form
system!user where system is
taken from a list of system names that UUCP knows about (see
user is the login name of the intended recipient on that
The options are:
The files (or sub-trees if directories are specified) are sent to
where mysystem is the name of the sending system. The
recipient user is notified by
when the files arrive.
Mail the sender when the copy is complete.
Copy the source file into the spool directory before transmission.
uupick searches the directory hierarchy below
/usr/spool/uucppublic for files destined for you. You can
use uupick to accept or reject those files.
For each entry (file or directory) found, uupick prints
the following message on the standard output:
from system : [ file filename ] [ dir dirname ] ?
uupick then reads a line from the standard input to
determine what is to be done with the file. Allowed responses are:
uupick invoked with the -s system
option searches only the directory
that is, only files from system are searched for.
Go on to next entry.
Delete the entry.
m [ dir ]
Move the entry to named directory dir. If dir is
not specified as a complete pathname (in which $HOME is
legitimate), a destination relative to the current directory is
assumed. If no destination is given, the default is the current
a [ dir ]
Same as m except all the files sent from system
are to be moved.
Print the content of the file.
Same as q
Run command in a shell.
Print a command summary.
In order to send files that begin with a dot (for example,
.profile) the files must by qualified with a dot. For
example: .profile, .prof*, .profil?
are correct; whereas *prof*, ?profile are
