       [ -V | --version ] [ -H host | --host=host ]
       [ -P port | --port=port ] [ -v user | --user=user ]

       file-pr  files  incoming  Problem  Reports in the GNATS database, sends
       acknowledgments 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
       Category 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
              environment variable.

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

       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.
