  uucheck - Checks for files and directories required by uucp


  uucheck [-v] [-x debug_level]


  -v  Displays a detailed explanation of how the uucp program interprets the
      permissions file.

  -x debug_level
      Displays debugging information. The valid	range for debug_level is 0 to
      9. The higher the	number,	the more detailed the final report.


  The uucheck command verifies the presence of the files and directories
  required by the uucp program.	 In addition to	checking for the presence of
  files	required by uucp, the uucheck command also checks for some errors in
  the /usr/lib/uucp/Permissions	file.

  The uucheck command does not check for correct file and directory modes or
  for errors, such as duplicate	login or machine names,	in the
  /usr/lib/uucp/Permissions file.

  When the uucp	program	is installed, uucheck verifies that the	directories,
  programs, and	support	files required to operate the networking facility are
  present. The command is executed automatically, as one of the	first steps
  in the installation process, before the required uucp	directories, pro-
  grams, and files are actually	installed.

  Issue	the uucheck command from the command line after	installing uucp, con-
  figuring uucp	for your site, or making changes in part of the	uucp program
  (for example,	after changing the /usr/lib/uucp/Permissions file).

  You can issue	the uucheck command from the command line only if you have
  superuser authority.


   1.  To find out how the uucp	program	interprets the
       /usr/lib/uucp/Permissions file, enter:

	    # uucheck -v

       The -v flag instructs the uucheck command to verify that	the uucp
       files exist and displays	a detailed explanation of how the uucp pro-
       grams interpret the permissions file.

   2.  To set the debug	level to 8, enter:

	    # uucheck -x 8
