      /usr/lbin/uucp/uucico [-x debug_level] [-d spool_directory]

      uucico scans the /var/spool/uucp directories for work files.  If such
      files exist, a connection to a remote system is attempted using the
      line protocol for the remote system specified in file
      /etc/uucp/Systems.  uucico then executes all requests for work and
      logs the results.

      uucico recognizes the following options:

	   -r1		  Start uucico in the MASTER mode.  The default is
			  SLAVE mode.

	   -s system	  Do work only for the system specified by system.
			  If there is no work for system on the local spool
			  directory, initiate a connection to system to
			  determine if system has work for the local system.
			  This option must be used if -r1 is specified.

	   -d spool_directory
			  Search directory spool_directory instead of the
			  default spool directories (usually

	   -x debug_level Use debugging option.	 debug_level is an integer
			  in the range 1 through 9.  More debugging
			  information is given for larger values of

      uucico is usually started by a local program such as cron, uucp, or
      uuxqt (see cron(1M), uucp(1), and uuxqt(1M)).  It when debugging
      should a user initiate uucico directly.

      When started by a local program, uucico is considered the MASTER and
      attempts a connection to a remote system.	 If uucico is started by a
      remote system, it is considered to be in SLAVE mode.

      For the uucico connection to a remote system to be successful, there
      must be an entry in the /etc/passwd file on the remote system of the
