       uucp, uulog - unix to unix copy

       uucp [ option ] ...  source-file ...  destination-file

       uulog [ option ] ...

       Uucp  copies files named by the source-file arguments to the destination-file argument.	A
       file name may be a path name on your machine, or may have the form


       where `system-name' is taken from a list of system names which uucp  knows  about.   Shell
       metacharacters  ?*[]  appearing	in  the pathname part will be expanded on the appropriate

       Pathnames may be one of(1)    a full pathname;

       (2)    a pathname preceded by ~user; where user is a userid on the specified system and is
	      replaced by that user's login directory;

       (3)    anything else is prefixed by the current directory.

       If  the	result is an erroneous pathname for the remote system the copy will fail.  If the
       destination-file is a directory, the last part of the source-file name is used.

       Uucp preserves execute permissions across the transmission and gives 0666 read  and  write
       permissions (see chmod(2)).

       The following options are interpreted by uucp.

       -d     Make all necessary directories for the file copy.

       -c     Use  the	source	file  when  copying out rather than copying the file to the spool

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

       Uulog  maintains  a  summary  log  of  uucp  and   uux(1)   transactions   in   the   file
       `/usr/spool/uucp/LOGFILE'   by	gathering   information  from  partial	log  files  named
       `/usr/spool/uucp/LOG.*.?'.  It removes the partial log files.

       The options cause uulog to print logging information:

       -ssys  Print information about work involving system sys.

       -uuser Print information about work done for the specified user.

       /usr/spool/uucp - spool directory
       /usr/lib/uucp/* - other data and program files

       uux(1), mail(1)
       D. A. Nowitz, Uucp Implementation Description

       The domain of remotely accessible files can (and for  obvious  security	reasons,  usually
       should)	be severely restricted.  You will very likely not be able to fetch files by path-
       name; ask a responsible person on the remote system to send them to  you.   For	the  same
       reasons you will probably not be able to send files to arbitrary pathnames.

       All files received by uucp will be owned by uucp.
       The  -m option will only work sending files or receiving a single file.	(Receiving multi-
       ple files specified by special shell characters ?*[] will not activate the -m option.)
