SYNOPSIS

uuconv -i type -o type [-p program] [standard UUCP options]

DESCRIPTION

The uuconv program can be used to convert UUCP configuration files from one format to another. This can be useful for administrators converting from an older UUCP package. Taylor UUCP is able to read and use old configuration file formats, but some new features can not be selected using the old formats.

The type of configuration file to read is specified using the ‘-i’ or ‘--input’ options. The type of configuration file to write is specified using the ‘-o’ or ‘--output’ options.

The supported configuration file types are ‘taylor’, ‘v2’, and ‘hdb’. For a description of the ‘taylor’ configuration files, see *Note Configuration Files::. The other types of configuration files are used by traditional UUCP packages, and are not described in this manual.

An input configuration of type ‘v2’ or ‘hdb’ is read from a compiled in directory (specified by ‘oldconfigdir’ in ‘Makefile’). An input configuration of type ‘taylor’ is read from a compiled in directory by default, but may be overridden with the standard ‘-I’ or ‘--config’ options.

The output configuration is written to files in the directory in which uuconv is run.

Some information in the input files may not be representable in the desired output format, in which case uuconv will silently discard it. The output of uuconv should be carefully checked before it is used. The uuchk(8) program may be used for this purpose.

The ‘-p’ or ‘--program’ option may be used to convert specific ‘cu’ configuration information, rather than the default of only converting the ‘uucp’ configuration information.
