NAME
       pcheck -	popcheck client

SYNOPSIS
       pcheck [-s SERVER, --server=SERVER] [-p PORT, --port=PORT] [-t TIMEOUT,
       --timeout=TIMEOUT] [--help] [--version]

DESCRIPTION
       This command is used for	checking the proper function of	 the  pcheckd.
       It will send a UDP request to the pcheckd running on the	machine	server
       (default: 127.0.0.1) on port port (default: 50110). It  will  wait  for
       timeout seconds for an answer. The answer is printed on stdout.

       There  are two types of requests: The mailbox request (-m) will ask the
       server about the	state of the named mailbox and will output it  ('0  no
       mail',  '1 mail', '2 new	mail', or '3 load too high'). The load request
       (-l) will ask the server	for the	load avarage for the last minute.

       The output of the command is the	answer to the request returned by  the
       server. It has the general format '+OK some message' if the request was
       successfull or '-ERR error message' if some error occured on the	server
       side.
