UUCP(1C)                                                 UUCP(1C)

     NAME
          uucp, uulog - unix to unix copy

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

          uulog [ option ] ...

     DESCRIPTION
          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

               system-name!pathname

          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
          system.

          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 copy-
               ing the file to the spool directory.

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

          Uulog maintains a summary log of uucp and uux(1) transac-
          tions 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.

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

     WARNING
          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 pathname;
          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.

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