FTP-PUT(1C)							   FTP-PUT(1C)

NAME
       ftp-put - copy files from local host to remote using passive mode ftp

SYNOPSIS
       ftp-put	 LocalFilename	 RemoteHost   [RemoteFilename]	 [:debug=true]
       [:buff=2048] [:rename=true]

DESCRIPTION
       ftp-put Opens a connection to the ftp server  on	 the  RemoteHost,  and
       puts, using ftp passive mode, the LocalFilename to a temporary filename
       constructed from	the RemoteFilename.  When the data  transfer  is  com-
       plete  a	 RENAME	 operation is issued. Therefore	the RemoteFilename ap-
       pears atomically. This is very important	when  uploading	 files	to  an
       area  from  which other ftp and http processes are actively serving. If
       :rename=false then the file is stored directly without renaming.

       Username	and password may be picked up from environment variables  (Re-
       moteHost_USER and RemoteHost_PASS) or the user is prompted.

       If LocalFilename	is . (dot) then	the data is read from standard input.

EXIT STATUS
       Errors result in	a non-zero exit	status.

FILES
       /usr/local/bin/ftp-put	/usr/local/bin/siod  /usr/local/lib/libsiod.so
       /usr/local/lib/siod/ss.so /usr/local/lib/siod/ftp.scm

BUGS
       The password is received	using the built-in unix	getpass, which on some
       systems (Solaris) truncates the user input to 8 characters.  If the re-
       mote system can handle longer passwords then this is a problem.
