This is the complete source code for a Unix UUCP package. It provides
everything you need to make a UUCP connection. It includes versions
cu, as well as
uuchk (a program to check configuration files),
uuconv (a program to convert from one type of
configuration file to another) and
tstuu (a test harness
for the package).
This is the standard UUCP package of the Free Software Foundation.
The package currently supports the f, g (in all window and packet sizes), G, t and e protocols, as well a Zmodem protocol and two new bidirectional protocols. If you have a Berkeley sockets library, it can make TCP connections. If you have TLI libraries, it can make TLI connections. It supports a new configuration file mechanism which I like (but other people dislike).
The package has a few advantages over regular UUCP:
On the other hand:
uupoll, etc. If you have current copies of these programs, you may be able to use them. Shell scripts versions of
uutryare provided, with most, if not all, of the functionality of the usual programs. I believe the supplied uustat program allows you to do everything that
uupollcould be written as a shell script.
The O'Reilly Linux Network Administrator's Guide has some discussion of Taylor UUCP. The O'Reilly Using and Managing UUCP book appears to be out of print.
