WorkingWithYourFilesInThePublicDirectory

All users have read access to the UUCP public directory. When you have a file in the public directory, you can use the cp command to copy the file or the mv command to move the file. If the sender uses the -n option on uucp, you are notified when the file is placed in the public directory.

Files sent to you with the uuto command are automatically placed in the receive subdirectory. You can use uupick to manage files in the receive subdirectory of the UUCP public directory. If receive is specified as the target directory on the uucp command, you can use uupick to manage the files.

Within the receive subdirectory, each user on the local system has a subdirectory.

To check your public UUCP directory for files sent to you by the uuto command, type uupick. For each file or directory found, uupick prompts you with a message and then you specify how that entry should be handled. For example, for a file, it might display:

from south: file memo2.txt ?

In response, you could type d to delete the file, or m to move the file into your current working directory, or m /mydir/tmp to put it in the directory /mydir/tmp.
