uuto [-mp] source-file... destination
uupick [-s system]
uuto sends source-file to destination. uuto uses the uucp(1C) facility to send files, while it allows the local system to control the file access. A source-file name is a path name on your machine. Destination has the form:
system[!system] ... !user
where system is taken from a list of system names that uucp knows about. User is the login name of someone on the specified system.
The files (or sub-trees if directories are specified) are sent to PUBDIR on system, where PUBDIR is a public directory defined in the uucp source. By default, this directory is /var/spool/uucppublic. Specifically the files are sent to
The recipient is notified by mail(1) of the arrival of files.

from system sysname: [file file-name] [dir dirname] ?
uupick then reads a line from standard input to determine the disposition of the file:
m [ dir ]
a [ dir ]
