Directories(4)						       Directories(4)



NAME
  Directories -	Contains queued	requests for file transfers and	command	exe-
  cutions on remote systems

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/spool/uucp/SystemName

DESCRIPTION

  The /usr/spool/uucp/SystemName directories are the uucp  program spooling
  directories on the local system.  The	uucp program creates a SystemName
  directory for	each system listed in the /usr/adm/uucp/Systems	file, includ-
  ing the local	system.

  Each SystemName directory contains queued requests issued by local users
  for file transfers to	remote systems and for command executions on remote
  systems.

  The uucp program uses	several	types of administrative	files to transfer
  data between systems.	 These files are stored	in the SystemName direc-
  tories. They are:

  Command (C.*)	files
	    Contain directions for the uucico daemon concerning	file
	    transfers.

  Data (D.*) files
	    Contain data to be sent to remote systems by the uucico daemon.

  Execute (X.*)	files
	    Contain instructions for running commands on remote	systems.

  Temporary (TM.*) files
	    Contain data files after their transfer to the remote system
	    until the uucp program can deliver them to their final destina-
	    tions (usually the /usr/spool/uucppublic directory).
