NAME

queue-pr - incoming mail control for GNATS

CONTENTS

Synopsis
Description
Options
Copying

SYNOPSIS

queue-pr [ -q | --queue ] [ -r | --run ]
[ -f filename | --file=filename ]
[ -m kbytes | --max-size=kbytes ]
[ -d database | --database=database ]
[ -h | --help ] [ -V | --version ]

DESCRIPTION

‘queue-pr -q’ should run through a pipe(2V) via the mail aliases(5) mechanism to automatically place incoming bug reports in a queue directory for GNATS.

Run ‘queue-pr -r’ via cron(8) to periodically empty the GNATS queue, filing new bug reports in the database.

Always use one of -q | --queue or -r | --run (but not both), in each call to queue-pr. These are mutually exclusive functions in order to avoid collisions.

OPTIONS

-q, --queue Accept standard input as an incoming mail message, placing this message in an incrementally numbered file in the database subdirectory gnats-queue for future handling.
-r, --run Redirect files from the database subdirectory gnats-queue to file-pr(8) which files and creates index entries for each.
-f filename or --file=filename
  Treat filename as input rather than reading from standard input (used with the --queue option).
-m kbytes, --max-size=kbytes
  Do not process messages larger than kbytes kilobytes in size. Files larger than the limit are left for human intervention.
-d database or --database=databasename
  Used with the --queue or --run options, use the database named database rather than the database default or the database specified by the GNATSDB environment variable.
-h, --help Displays a short usage message.
-V, --version
  Displays the queue-pr version number.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

The GNATSDB environment variable is used to determine which database to use. For a local database, it contains the name of the database to access. If GNATSDB is not set, the database named default is used.
