PLUMB(1)                     General Commands Manual                    PLUMB(1)



NAME
       plumb - send message to plumber

SYNOPSIS
       plumb [ -p plumbfile ] [ -a attributes ] [ -s source ] [ -d destination ]
       [ -t type ] [ -w directory ] -i | data...

DESCRIPTION
       The plumb command formats and sends a plumbing message whose data is, by
       default, the concatenation of the argument strings separated by blanks.
       The options are:

       -p     write the message to plumbfile (default /mnt/plumb/send).

       -a     set the attr field of the message (default is empty).

       -s     set the src field of the message (default is plumb).

       -d     set the dst field of the message (default is empty).

       -t     set the type field of the message (default is text).

       -w     set the wdir field of the message (default is the current working
              directory of plumb).

       -i     take the data from standard input rather than the argument
              strings.  If an action= attribute is not otherwise specified,
              plumb will add an action=showdata attribute to the message.
