       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	direc-
       tory 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 data-
		 base 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 in-
		 put (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	 data-
		 base 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 ac-
       cess.  If GNATSDB is not	set, the database named	default	is used.
