The uutry command is a shell that invokes uucico to call a remote site, system. Debugging is turned on (level 9). The debugging output is put into the file /tmp/system. A tail -f on this file is executed so that the debugging output is printed on the terminal during execution. Typing the Interrupt key sequence gives control back to the terminal while uucico continues to run, putting its output in /tmp/system.
