uucico is the file transport program for UUCP work file transfers.
uux(1C) and uucp(1C) both queue jobs that will be transferred by
uucico. It is normally started by the scheduler, uusched (8C), but can
be started manually; this is done for debugging. For example, the
script Uutry starts uucico with debugging turned on.
Specify the role that uucico should perform. role_number is the
digit 1 for master mode or 0 for slave mode (default). Master
mode should be specified when uucico is started by a program or
Produce debugging output on the standard output. debug_level is
a number between 0 and 9; higher numbers give more detailed
information. 5, 7, and 9 are good numbers to try; they give
increasing amounts of detail.
Define the interface used with uucico. This interface only
affects slave mode. Known interfaces are UNIX (default).
