       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.

Log, .Log - Contains the uucp program log files SYNOPSIS
/usr/spool/uucp/.Log DESCRIPTION
The /usr/spool/uucp/.Log directories contain uucp program log files. The uucp program normally places status information about each trans- action in the appropriate log file each time you use the networking utilities facility. All transactions of the uucico and uuxqt daemons are logged in files named for the remote system concerned. The files are stored in a subdirectory of the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log directory named for the daemon involved. Thus, the log files are named with a form of the following: /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/DaemonName/SystemName The uucp and uuto commands call the uucico daemon. The uucico daemon activities for a particular remote system are logged in the System- Name file in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/uucico directory on the local system. The uux and uusend commands call the uuxqt daemon. The uuxqt daemon activities for a particular remote system are logged in the SystemName file in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Log/uuxqt directory on the local system. When more than one uucp process is running, however, the system cannot access the standard log file, so it places the status information in a file with a .Log prefix that covers just the single transaction. The uucp program can automatically append the temporary log files to a primary log file. This is called compacting the log files, and is handled by the uudemon.cleanu command, a shell procedure, which combines the log files of the activities of the uucico and uuxqt daemons on a system and stores them in the /usr/spool/uucp/.Old directory. The default is for the uudemon.cleanu command to save log files that are 2 days old. This default can be changed by modifying the appro- priate line in the shell script. If storage space is a problem on a particular system, reduce the number of days that the files are kept in the individual log files. The uulog command can be used to view the uucp program log files.
