uubp - Unix-to-Unix beer protocol
uubp [-acefghlqy] site
Uubp allows the user to transfer beer, ale, or other fermented grain beverages between network sites. Using TCP/IP (telecommunication pro-
tocol for imbibing pilsners), uubp encodes beer from a local file system into packets suitable for FTP (fermentation transfer protocol)
delivery at a remote IP site.
% uubp -c"AMBER" -f0.7 -y0 -q2 126.96.36.199
The preceding example sends two six-packs (-q2) of amber ale (-c"AMBER") with a fizziness quotient of 70%, brewed using yeast of type 0
(saccharomyces cerevisiae) to PI address 188.8.131.52, which is the IP address of the White House.
Both source and destination sites must be running uubp-daemon. In addition, local restriction exist in many areas for the transportation
alkohol across state lines. The Electronic Frontier Foundation is currently involved in litigation to ensure the ability to distribute beer
through the uubp protocol according to the 21st Amendment. To support the SIG of EFF devoted to this cause, join the Homebrewers of the
Electronic Frontier Engaged in Winning Electronic Independence and Zeroing Establishment Nonsense (HEFEWEIZEN), or send mail to

Have a homebrew!
