NAME
  Temporary - Stores data files	during transfers to remote systems

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/spool/uucp/SystemName/TM.xxPID.000

DESCRIPTION

  The uucp Temporary (TM.*) files store	data files during transfers to remote
  systems.  After a Data (D.*) file is transferred to a	remote system by the
  uucico daemon, the uucp program places it in a subdirectory of the uucp
  spooling directory named /usr/spool/uucp/SystemName, where the SystemName
  directory is named for the computer that is transmitting the file.  The
  uucp program creates a temporary data	file to	hold the original data file.

  The full pathname of the temporary data file is in the following format:

       /usr/spool/uucp/SystemName/TM.xxPID.000

  where	the SystemName directory is named for the computer that	is sending
  the file, and	TM.xxPID.000 is	the name of the	file; for example,
  TM.00451.000.	 The PID variable is the process ID of the job.
