NAME
nfxmit, nfrcv - notesfile networking programs SYNOPSIS
nfxmit -dsite [ -r ] [ -a ] [ -i ] [ -t date-spec ] [ -f file ] topic [ ... ] nfrcv topic fromsystem DESCRIPTION
Nfxmit and nfrcv implement networking of notesfiles. The nfxmit program packages eligible new articles and sends them to a remote system. Nfrcv is the receiving end of this team. Nfxmit sends the specified notesfiles to the site specified with the -d option. The -r option specifies that a request should be queued for the remote site to transmit updates from its copies of the notesfiles sent. The -r option is used only if the other site does not automatically queue updates of the notesfile. Specify -a to have articles which originated in news(1) sent. News(1)-originated articles will usually reach each system via the news pro- gram. The -i option indicates that nfxmit is to send articles to the destination that it normally would not send. These articles are those that were written there or were received at the local site from that particular site. The -i option is separate from the timestamp functions. Articles are first selected on the basis of the time received and criteria for having passed through news or the destination system are applied later. A timestamp of the last transmission of each notesfile to each system is maintained. This is used for determining the notes to send. If a different timestamp is desired, use the -t option. The supplied timestamp is used for this transfer and the stored timestamp is updated. Specify -f myfile on the command line to have nfxmit read myfile for a list of notesfiles to be sent. This is useful if the number of notesfiles is too numerous to list on a single command line. The shell meta-characters *, ?, [, and ] are recognized in both the topic parameter and the entries in myfile. Nfxmit uses uux(I) to invoke nfrcv on the remote system in order to process the incoming notes. Non-uucp connections are supported and specified in the file /usr/spool/notes/.utilities/net.how FILES
/usr/spool/notes/.utilities/net.how specifies connection methods between systems /usr/spool/notes/.utilities/net.alias directory containing mapping of local and remote notesfile names /usr/spool/notes/.sequencer/Sy:sysname Seqeuncing timestamps for sysname. SEE ALSO

NFDUMP(8)						      System Manager's Manual							 NFDUMP(8)

NAME
nfdump, nfload - notesfile dump/load programs SYNOPSIS
nfdump notesfile nfload [ -Ddirectory ] notesfile DESCRIPTION
Nfdump and nfload are used to convert notesfile data base formats. Nfdump converts the specified notesfile to a portable ASCII format and writes it to standard output. Some diagnostics are produced on stderr. Nfdump can be run by any user; access to a particular notesfile is governed by that notesfile's access list. Nfload is used on the output from nfdump to create a new notesfile. The -D option specifies an alternate base directory for the notesfile. If unspecified, this defaults to ``/usr/spool/notes''. Nfload reads standard input for the ASCII representation of the notesfile. Typical use of these two programs occurs when converting an existing notesfile data base to a new format. The nfdump program should be compiled with the older structure definitions while nfload is compiled with the newer structures. The data base can then be converted with a shell script of the following nature: mkdir .OLD mv * .OLD for i in `ls .OLD` do echo $i start nfdump $i | nfload -D/usr/spool/newnotes $i done echo $i done echo ALL DONE rm -rf .OLD This assumes that the old data base is in ``/usr/spool/notes'' and the new data base is to be placed in ``/usr/spool/newnotes''. After the conversion is complete, one can move the old data base from ``/usr/spool/notes'' to ``/usr/spool/oldformat'' and the new data base from ``/usr/spool/newnotes'' to ``/usr/spool/notes''.
