       The  command  compacts  uucp  system spool directories and associated subdirectories. If system is ALL, then all existing uucp system spool
       directories are compacted.  Otherwise, only the specified system spool directory is compacted.  If no system is	specified,  is	compacted.
       If  is stopped before it is finished, it can be restarted without reprocessing directories.  The command continues processing where it left
       off during it's previous instantiation.

       The command makes a per system spool directory and associated subdirectories for each of the specified systems.	For example, if system	is
       mk3 and if the local system name is penny, the following directories are created:
       The  command  moves files from old spool directories to	new spool directories.	Because the structure of the spool directories has changed
       from older versions of it is necessary to respool old spooled files to new spool directories in at least two instances:

       o    When installing the current version of

       o    When creating a new system spool directory for each system.

       In the latter case, it is necessary to move files from to the new spool directories.  To ease this task, moves files that have been spooled
       in  one	of 4 formats and respools them under the new spooling structure.  The format is specified by the -t# option, where the number sign
       (#) can be any one of the following:

       o   Original spool - All files are in

       o   Split spool - Contains the subdirectories

       o   Modified split spool -  Contains all subdirectories listed in split spool, and

       o   Used when a new system directory has been created and spool files must be moved from the DEFAULT directory to the new system directory.

       The command forces a connect attempt to the named systems even if recent attempts have failed, but not if the file prohibits the call.  For
       example, the file will prohibit the call if it is the wrong time of day.  Thus, the should be monitored for messages about the connection.

Data - Contains data to be sent to remote systems SYNOPSIS
/usr/spool/uucp/LocalSystemName/D.SystemNamexxxx### DESCRIPTION
Data (D.*) files contain the data to be sent to remote systems by the uucp uucico daemon. The full pathname of a data file is a form of the following: /usr/spool/uucp/SystemName/D.SystemNamexxxx### where the SystemName directory and the SystemName portion of the file name indicate the name of the remote system. The xxxx### notation is the hexadecimal sequence number of the Command (C.*) file associated with that data file; for example, D.venus471afd8. After a set period of time (specified by the uusched daemon), the uucico daemon transfers the data file to the designated system. It places the original data file in a subdirectory of the uucp spooling directory named /usr/spool/uucp/SystemName, where the SystemName directory is named for the computer that is transmitting the file, and creates a Temporary (TM.*) file to hold the original data file. After receiving the entire file, the uucp program takes one of three actions: If the file was sent with the uucp command and there were no transfer problems, the program immediately renames the TM.* file with the appropriate data filename, such as D.venus471afd8, and sends it to the specified destination. If the file was sent with the uuto command, the uucp program also renames the temporary data file with the appropriate D.* filename. It then places the data file in the public directory /usr/spool/uucppublic, where the user receives the data file and handles it with one of the uupick command options. If there were transfer problems (such as a failed login or an unavailable device), the temporary data file remains in the spooling subdirectory. The uudemon.cleanu command, a shell script, removes these files automatically at specified intervals, or they can be removed manually. FILES
