       file-pr [ -f file | --file=file ] [ -h | --help ]
       [ -V | --version ] [ -H host | --host=host ]
       [ -P port | --port=port ] [ -v user | --user=user ]

       [ -d databasename | --database=databasename ]

       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

       -d, --database

              database is specified, the database named default is assumed.
              This option overrides the database specified in the GNATSDB
              environment variable.

       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.
