ASCII-XFR(1)		      Linux Users Manual		  ASCII-XFR(1)

NAME
       ascii-xfr - upload/download files using the ASCII protocol

SYNOPSIS
       ascii-xfr -s|-r [-ednv] [-l linedelay] [-c characterdelay] filename

DESCRIPTION
       Ascii-xfr Transfers files in ASCII mode.	This means no flow control, no
       checksumming and	no file-name negotiation. It should only  be  used  if
       the remote system doesn't understand anything else.

       The  ASCII protocol transfers files line-by-line. The EOL (End-Of-Line)
       character is transmitted	as CRLF. When receiving, the CR	 character  is
       stripped	 from  the  incoming file.  The	Control-Z (ASCII 26) character
       signals End-Of-File, if option -e is specified (unless you change it to
       Control-D (ASCII	4) with	-d).

       Ascii-xfr  reads	 from  stdin  when receiving, and sends	data on	stdout
       when sending. Some form of input	or output redirection to the modem de-
       vice is thus needed when	downloading or uploading, respectively.

OPTIONS
       -s     Send a file.

       -r     Receive a	file. One of -s	or -r must be present.

       -e     Send  the	End-Of-File character (Control-Z, ASCII	26 by default)
	      when uploading has finished.

       -d     Use the Control-D	(ASCII 4) as End-Of-File character.

       -n     Do not translate CR to CRLF and vice versa.

       -v     Verbose: show transfer statistics	on the stderr output.

       -l milliseconds
	      When transmitting, pause for this	delay after each line.

       -c milliseconds
	      When transmitting, pause for this	delay after each character.

       file   Name of the file to send or receive. When	receiving, any	exist-
	      ing file by this name will be truncated.

USAGE WITH MINICOM
       If  you want to call this program from minicom(1), start	minicom	and go
       to the Options menu. Select File	transfer protocols.  Add the following
       lines, for example as protocols I and J.

       I  Ascii	   /usr/bin/ascii-xfr -sv   Y	U   N	Y
       J  Ascii	   /usr/bin/ascii-xfr -rv   Y	D   N	Y
