|REMOTE(5)||File Formats Manual||REMOTE(5)|
remotefile describes remote hosts known by cu(1). It is an ASCII file structured somewhat like the termcap(5) file. Each line in the file provides a description for a single remote host. Fields are separated by a colon (‘:’). Lines ending with a ‘\’ character immediately followed by a newline are continued on the next line.
The first entry is the name(s) of the host system. If there is more than one name for a system, the names are separated by vertical bars (‘|’). After the name of the system comes the fields of the description (the capabilities).
Capabilities are either strings (str), numbers (num), or boolean flags (bool). A string capability is specified by capability=value; for example, ‘dv=/dev/harris’. A numeric capability is specified by capability#value; for example, ‘br#19200’. A boolean capability is specified by simply listing the capability.
remotefile format appeared in 4.2BSD.
