PLUMB(1)                                                 PLUMB(1)

     NAME
          plumb - send message to plumber

     SYNOPSIS
          plumb [ -p plumbfile ] [ -a attributes ] [ -s source ] [ -d
          destination ] [ -t type ] [ -w directory ] -i | data...

     DESCRIPTION
          The plumb command formats and sends a plumbing message whose
          data is, by default, the concatenation of the argument
          strings separated by blanks.  The options are:

          -p   write the message to plumbfile (default
               /mnt/plumb/send).

          -a   set the attr field of the message (default is empty).

          -s   set the src field of the message (default is plumb).

          -d   set the dst field of the message (default is empty).

          -t   set the type field of the message (default is text).

          -w   set the wdir field of the message (default is the cur-
               rent working directory of plumb).

          -i   take the data from standard input rather than the argu-
               ment strings.  If an action= attribute is not otherwise
               specified, plumb will add an action=showdata attribute
               to the message.
