OPTIONS

Searches /usr/spool/uucppublic/receive/user/system only for files sent from the specified system. System names must contain only ASCII characters.
 

DESCRIPTION

When the files have arrived, the rmail command notifies the recipient, who then issues the uupick command to receive and handle the files.

Specifically, uupick searches the public directory on the local system for files with some form of the following name:

/usr/spool/uucppublic/receive/user/system/file

where user is the user ID of the user issuing the command.

For each entry (file or directory) found, uupick displays the following message: from system: [file file] [dir directory] ?

The uupick command then waits for a response from standard input to determine the disposition of the file or directory. Issuing the uupick command with the appropriate file-handling option completes the transfer.
 

File-Handling Options

After notifying the user that a file was sent from system, uupick displays a ? (question mark), prompting for one of the following file-handling options: Displays all file-handling options. Moves on to the next entry in the receive directory. Moves all uuto files currently in the receive directory into a specified directory on the local system. The default is the current working directory. Use a full or relative pathname to specify a different directory. Deletes the specified file. Moves the specified file to a specified directory. If directory is not specified as a complete pathname, a destination relative to the current directory is assumed. If directory is not specified at all, the default is the current working directory on the local system. Displays the contents of the file on the terminal screen. Stops processing and exits from uupick. Same as q. Escapes to a shell to run the specified command. After the command executes, it returns automatically to uupick so you can continue to handle the uuto files in the receive directory.
