uubp -- Unix-to-Unix beer protocol
uubp [- acefghlqy] site
Uupb allows the user to transfer beer, ale, or other fermented grain
beverages between network sites. Using TCP/IP (telecommunications
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.
% uubp -c"AMBER" -f0.7 -y0 -q2 22.214.171.124
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
(saccharo-myces cerevisiae) to IP address 126.96.36.199, which is the
IP address for the White House.
Both source and destination sites must be running uubp-daemon. In
addition, local restrictions exist in many areas for the transportation
of alcohol 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
firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include the entire text of
this manual page.
Good luck with your studying and your future career.
