uutry - Tries to contact remote system with debugging on
The uutry command is a shell that invokes uucico to call a remote site,

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 con-
tinues to run, putting its output in /tmp/system.

attempt to establish a connection immediately.
The output file, /tmp/system is overwritten each time uutry is executed to
