NAME

       uubp - Unix-to-Unix beer protocol

SYNOPSIS

       uubp [-acefghlqy] site

DESCRIPTION

       Uubp  allows  the  user to transfer beer, ale, or other fermented grain
       beverages  between  network  sites.  Using  TCP/IP   (telecommunication
       protocol  for  imbibing  pilsners), uubp encodes beer from a local file
       system into packets suitable for FTP (fermentation  transfer  protocol)
       delivery at a remote IP site.

       Example:

       % uubp -c"AMBER" -f0.7 -y0 -q2 198.137.240.100

       The   preceding   example  sends  two  six-packs  (-q2)  of  amber  ale
       (-c"AMBER") with a fizziness quotient of 70%,  brewed  using  yeast  of
       type  0 (saccharomyces cerevisiae) to PI address 198.137.240.100, which
       is the IP address of the White House.

RESTRICTIONS

       Both source and destination sites  must  be  running  uubp-daemon.   In
       addition,  local restriction exist in many areas for the transportation
       alkohol across state  lines.  The  Electronic  Frontier  Foundation  is
       currently  involved  in  litigation to ensure the ability to distribute
       beer through the uubp protocol according  to  the  21st  Amendment.  To
       support  the  SIG of EFF devoted to this cause, join the Homebrewers of
       the Electronic Frontier Engaged in Winning Electronic Independence  and
       Zeroing   Establishment   Nonsense   (HEFEWEIZEN),   or  send  mail  to
       hefeweizen@eff.eff.org. Be sure to include  the  entire  text  of  this
       manual page.

NOTES

       Have a homebrew!
