  uupick - Accepts or rejects files transmitted	to a user by uuto


  uupick [-ssystem]

  The uupick command accepts or	rejects	files that the uuto command has
  transmitted to a designated user ID.


  Interfaces documented	on this	reference page conform to industry standards
  as follows:

  uupick:  XCU5.0

  Refer	to the standards(5) reference page for more information	about indus-
  try standards	and associated tags.


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


  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:


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

  For each entry (file or directory) found, uupick displays the	following

       from system: [file file]	[dir directory]

  The uupick command then waits	for a response from standard input to deter-
  mine 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

      Moves on to the next entry in the	receive	directory.

  a [directory]
      Moves all	uuto files currently in	the receive directory into a speci-
      fied directory on	the local system.  The default is the current working
      directory.  Use a	full or	relative pathname to specify a different

  d   Deletes the specified file.

  m [directory]
      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.

  p   Displays the contents of the file	on the terminal	screen.

  q   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.


  The uupick utility is	marked LEGACY in XCU Issue 5.
