file-pr(8)		   GNATS Internal Utilities		    file-pr(8)

       file-pr - files incoming	problem	reports	in GNATS database

       file-pr [ -f file | --file=file ] [ -h |	--help ]
       [ -V | --version	] [ -H host | --host=host ]
       [ -P port | --port=port ] [ -v user | --user=user ]
       [ -w password | --passwd=password ]
       [ -d databasename | --database=databasename ]

       file-pr files incoming Problem Reports in the GNATS database, sends ac-
       knowledgments to	approriate parties and logs database activity.

       file-pr assigns the Problem Report an identification  number  and  then
       files  it  in the GNATS database	either under the category specified in
       the Category field of the PR, or	under the default category if the Cat-
       egory field is nonexistent or contains an invalid category name.

       For  the	 default  GNATS	configuration, the person responsible for that
       category	and the	person responsible for the submitter site where	the PR
       originated  receive  a copy of the PR in	its entirety.  Optionally, the
       originator of the PR receives an	acknowledgment that the	PR arrived and
       was filed

       -f file,	--filename=file
	      Accept  file  as	input; if this option is not present, standard
	      input is used.

       -h, --help
	      Display usage summary for	file-pr.

       -V, --version
	      Display version number for file-pr.

       -d, --database
	      Specifies	the database to	which the PR is	to be  submitted.   If
	      no database is specified,	the database named default is assumed.
	      This option overrides the	database specified in the GNATSDB  en-
	      vironment	variable.

   GNATS network options:
       -H, --host
	      Hostname of the GNATS server.

       -P, --port
	      The port that the	GNATS server runs on.

       -v, --username
	      Username used to log into	the GNATS server.

       -w, --passwd
	      Password used to log into	the GNATS server.

       The GNATSDB environment variable	is used	to determine which database to
       use.  For a local database, it contains the name	of the database	to ac-

       For  network  access  via gnatsd, it contains a colon-separated list of
       strings that describe the remote	database, in the form


       Any of the fields may be	omitted, but at	least one colon	 must  appear;
       otherwise, the value is assumed to be the name of a local database.

       If  GNATSDB  is	not  set, it is	assumed	that the database is local and
       that its	name is	default.
