       file-pr - files incoming problem reports in GNATS database


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

       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 input is used.

       -h, --help
              Display usage summary for file-pr.

       -V, --version
              Display version number for file-pr.

       -d, --database
              Specifies the database to which the PR is to  be  submitted.   If  no  database  is
              specified,  the  database  named  default  is  assumed.   This option overrides the
              database specified in the GNATSDB environment variable.

   GNATS network options:
       -H, --host
              Hostname of the GNATS server.

       -P, --port
              The port that the GNATS server runs on.

       -v, --username
              Username used to log into the GNATS server.

       -w, --passwd
              Password used to log into the GNATS server.


       The GNATSDB environment variable is used to determine which database to use.  For a  local
       database, it contains the name of the database to access.

       For network access via gnatsd, it contains a colon-separated list of strings that describe
       the remote database, in the form


       Any of the fields may be omitted, but at least one colon must appear; 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
