UUSEND(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		     UUSEND(1)

     uusend — send a file to a remote host

     uusend [-m mode] sourcefile sys1!sys2!..!remotefile

     Uusend sends a file to a given location on a remote system.  The system
     need not be directly connected to the local system, but a chain of
     uucp(1) links must to connect the two systems.

     Available option:

     -m mode	 The mode of the file on the remote end is taken from the
		 octal number given.  Otherwise, the mode of the input file
		 will be used.

     The sourcefile can be ‘-’, meaning to use the standard input.  Both of
     these options are primarily intended for internal use of uusend.

     The remotefile can include the ~userid syntax.

     If anything goes wrong any further away than the first system down the
     line, you will never hear about it.

     uux(1), uucp(1), uuencode(1)

     This command should not exist, since uucp should handle it.

     All systems along the line must have the uusend command available and
     allow remote execution of it.

     Some uucp systems have a bug where binary files cannot be the input to a
     uux(1) command.  If this bug exists in any system along the line, the
     file will show up severely munged.

     The uusend command appeared in 4.0BSD.
