 Command   Description
 -----------------------------------------------------------------
 uucheck   Checks for the presence of files and directories
           required by uucp. This command also checks the
           Permissions file for obvious errors.
 uulog     Displays the contents of the log directories for
           specific hosts.
 uuname    Lists the machines that you are set up to contact.
 uustat    Displays the status of the currently queued uucp 
           requests or connections to other systems.
 uutry     Invokes uucico with debugging, saves the information to
           the file /tmp/machine, and directs the last 10 lines of
           the output to the terminal. The -x option changes the
           debugging level (default is level 5).
