16.1.2. uucico Command-line Options

In this section, we describe the most important command-line options for uucico  :

  • – – system, –s system

    Calls the named system unless prohibited by call-time restrictions.

  • –S system

    Calls the named system unconditionally.

  • – –master, –r1

    Starts uucico in master mode. This is the default when –s or –S is given. All by itself, the –r1 option causes uucico to try to call all systems in the sys file described in the next section of this chapter, unless prohibited by call or retry time restrictions.

  • – –slave, –r0

    Starts uucico in slave mode. This is the default when no –s or –S is given. In slave mode, either standard input/output are assumed to be connected to a serial port, or the TCP port specified by the –p option is used.

  • – –ifwork, –C

    This option supplements –s or –S and tells uucico to call the named system only if there are jobs spooled for it.

  • – –debug type , –x type , –X type

    Turns on debugging of the specified type. Several types can be given as a comma-separated list. The following types are valid: abnormal , chat , handshake , uucp-proto , proto , port , config , spooldir , execute , incoming , and outgoing . Using all turns on all options. For compatibility with other UUCP implementations, a number may be specified instead, which turns on debugging for the first n items from the above list.

    Debugging messages will be logged to the Debug file below /var/spool/uucp .



It's also included in the 4.4BSD System Manager's Manual .
