NAME
       ncftpbatch - Individual batch FTP job processor

SYNOPSIS
       ncftpbatch -d

       ncftpbatch -l

       ncftpbatch -D

OPTIONS
   Command line	flags:
       -d      Begin  background  processing of	FTP jobs in the	current	user's
	       $HOME/.ncftp/spool directory.  This  returns  immediately,  be-
	       cause a daemon process is spawned and ran in the	background.

       -l      Lists the contents of the user's	job queue.

       -D      This is like -d,	except that the	process	does not become	a dae-
	       mon.

DESCRIPTION
       This program is responsible for processing background FTP requests.  It
       is  normally  only run by ncftp and not manually	by a human being, how-
       ever you	can run	it to manually process the FTP job queue.

       The jobs	are spool files	written	to a user's $HOME/.ncftp/spool	direc-
       tory  and  have a special format	and file-naming	convention (which con-
       tains when the job is to	be run).  ncftp	 runs  this  program  when  it
       needs  to, but if the ncftpbatch	daemon dies unexpectedly the jobs that
       are left	in the queue will not be processed until another  instance  of
       ncftpbatch is run.

       ncftpget	 and  ncftpput	can also be used to submit jobs	for batch pro-
       cessing,	using those utilities' -b command-line flag.  If desired,  you
       can also	manually create	the spool files	although this procedure	is not
       documented here (see the	manual page for	ncftpspooler for more informa-
       tion on how to do that).

DIAGNOSTICS
       ncftpbatch writes to its	own log	file, the $HOME/.ncftp/spool/log file.
       This file should	be examined to determine if any	 ncftpbatch  processes
       are actively working on jobs.
