The uustat utility shall display the status of, or cancel, previously
specified uucp requests, or provide general status on uucp
connections to other systems.
When no options are given, uustat shall write 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 Base Definitions volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001,
Chapter 11, 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 shall write an error message
describing the problem and exit with a non-zero exit status.
The uustat utility shall conform to the Base Definitions volume of
IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, Section 12.2, Utility Syntax Guidelines.
The following options shall be supported:
Write the jobs queued for each machine.
Kill the uucp request whose job identification is
jobid. The application shall ensure that the killed uucp
request belongs to the person invoking uustat unless that user has
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
Write the status of all uucp requests for remote
Write the status of all uucp requests issued by
The following environment variables shall affect the execution of uustat:
Provide a default value for the internationalization
variables that are unset or null. (See the Base Definitions volume of
IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, Section 8.2, Internationalization
Variables for the precedence of internationalization variables used to
determine the values of locale categories.)
If set to a non-empty string value, override the values of
all the other internationalization variables.
Determine the locale for the interpretation of sequences of
bytes of text data as characters (for example, single-byte 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 location of message catalogs for the
processing of LC_MESSAGES.
