uustat - uucp status inquiry and job control
uustat [ -q| -k jobid| -r jobid] uustat [-s system][-u user]
The uustat utility displays the status of, or cancels, previously specified uucp requests, or provides general status on uucp connections to other systems.
When no options are given, uustat writes to standard output the status of all uucp requests issued by the current user.
Typical implementations of this utility require a communications line configured to use the XBD specification, General Terminal Interface , but other communications means may be used. On systems where there are no available communications means (either temporarily or permanently), this utility will write an error message describing the problem and exit with a non-zero exit status.
The uustat utility supports the XBD specification, Utility Syntax Guidelines . The following options are supported:
- Write the jobs queued for each machine.
- -k jobid
- Kill the uucp request whose job identification is jobid. The killed uucp request must belong to the person invoking uustat unless that user has appropriate privileges.
- -r jobid
- Rejuvenate jobid. The files associated with jobid are touched so that their modification time is set to the current time. This prevents the cleanup program from deleting the job until the jobs modification time reaches the limit imposed by the program.
- -s system
- Write the status of all uucp requests for remote system system.
- -u user
- Write the status of all uucp requests issued by user.
The following environment variables affect the execution of uustat:
- Provide a default value for the internationalisation variables that are unset or null. If LANG is unset or null, the corresponding value from the implementation-dependent default locale will be used. If any of the internationalisation variables contains an invalid setting, the utility will behave as if none of the variables had been defined.
- If set to a non-empty string value, override the values of all the other internationalisation variables.
- Determine the locale for the interpretation of sequences of bytes of text data as characters (for example, single- as opposed to multi-byte characters in arguments).
- Determine the locale that should be used to affect the format and contents of diagnostic messages written to standard error, and informative messages written to standard output.
- Determine the format of date and time strings output by uustat.
- Determine the location of message catalogues for the processing of LC_MESSAGES .
- Determine the timezone used with date and time strings.
The standard output consists of information about each job selected, in an unspecified format. The information will include at least the job ID, the user ID or name and the remote system name.
Used only for diagnostic messages.
The following exit values are returned:
- Successful completion.
- An error occurred.
