|site||The news site name being configured. This must match a site name from newsfeeds(5).|
|host||The UUCP host name to which batches should be sent for this site. If omitted, the news site name will be used as the UUCP host name.|
|funnel||In the case of a site configured as a funnel, send-uucp needs to flush the channel (or exploder) being used as the target of the funnel instead of flushing the site. This is the way to tell send-uucp the name of the channel or exploder to flush for this site. If not specified, default to flushing the site.|
|compressor||The compression method to use for batches. This should be one of bzip2, compress, gzip or none. Arguments for the compression command may be specified by using _ instead of spaces. For example, gzip_-9. The default value is gzip.|
|maxsize||The maximum size in bytes of a single batch before compression. The default value is 500000 bytes.|
|batchtime||A comma separated list of hours during which batches should be generated for a given site. When send-uucp runs, a site will only be processed if the current hour matches one of the hours in batchtime. The default is no limitation on when to generate batches.|
Here is an example for the send-uucp.cf configuration file:
zoetermeer gzip 1048576 5,18,22 hoofddorp gzip 1048576 5,18,22 pa3ebv gzip 1048576 5,18,22 drinkel bzip2 1048576 5,6,18,20,22,0,2 manhole compress 1048576 5,18,22 owl compress 1048576 able pern::MYFUNNEL!
This defines eight UUCP sites. The first three and the last two use gzip compression, the fourth site (drinkel) uses bzip2 and the remaining sites (manhole and owl) use compress. The first six use a batch size of 1 MB, and the two last sites (able and pern) use the default of 500,000 bytes. The zoetermeer, hoofddorp, pa3ebv, and manhole sites will only have batches generated for them during the hours of 05:00, 18:00, and 22:00, and the drinkel site will only have batches generated during those hours and 06:00, 20:00, 00:00, and 02:00. There are no restrictions on when batches will be generated for owl, able and pern.
The pern site is configured as a funnel into MYFUNNEL!. send-uucp will issue ctlinnd flush MYFUNNEL! instead of ctlinnd flush pern.
As for the newsfeeds file, the usual flags used for a UUCP feed are Tf,Wnb. Here is a typical entry for zoetermeer, where the batching is kept between 4 KB and 1 KB:
zoetermeer\ :*,!junk,!control,!control.*/!foo\ :Tf,Wnb,B4096/1024:
pathbin/send-uucp The Perl script itself used to create news batches from the outgoing files. pathetc/send-uucp.cf The configuration file which specifies a list of sites to be processed.
