       queue-pr - incoming mail control for GNATS


       queue-pr  [ -q | --queue ] [ -r | --run ]
                 [ -f filename | --file=filename ]
                 [ -m kbytes | --max-size=kbytes ]
                 [ -d database | --database=database ]
                 [ -h | --help ] [ -V | --version ]


queue-pr  -q’  should  run  through a pipe(2V) via the mail aliases(5)
       mechanism to automatically  place  incoming  bug  reports  in  a  queue
       directory for GNATS.

       Run  ‘queue-pr  -r’  via cron(8) to periodically empty the GNATS queue,
       filing new bug reports in the database.

       Always use one of -q | --queue or -r | --run (but not  both),  in  each
       call  to  queue-pr.  These are mutually exclusive functions in order to
       avoid collisions.


       -q, --queue
                 Accept standard input as an incoming  mail  message,  placing
                 this  message  in  an  incrementally  numbered  file  in  the
                 database subdirectory gnats-queue for future handling.

       -r, --run Redirect files from the database subdirectory gnats-queue  to
                 file-pr(8) which files and creates index entries for each.

       -f filename or --file=filename
                 Treat  filename  as  input  rather than reading from standard
                 input (used with the --queue option).

       -m kbytes, --max-size=kbytes
                 Do not process messages larger than kbytes kilobytes in size.
                 Files  larger than the limit are left for human intervention.

       -d database or --database=databasename
                 Used with the --queue or  --run  options,  use  the  database
                 named  database  rather  than  the  database  default  or the
                 database specified by the GNATSDB environment variable.

       -h, --help
                 Displays a short usage message.

       -V, --version
                 Displays the queue-pr version number.


       The GNATSDB environment variable is used to determine which database to
       use.   For  a  local  database, it contains the name of the database to
       access.  If GNATSDB is not set, the database named default is used.
