"Upload file from desktop to UNIX server via putty"

Post #302886941 by techy1 on Tuesday 4th of February 2014 12:21:55 PM

automating a ftp job from your local system to a unix system... hmm... unless your .csv's are uniquely timestamped it might not work in your favor. you can always cd into the folder from command line (windows) and then ftp to the remote server. use the options:
Code:
prompt
mput *

or use a ftp tool like filezilla (i usually suggest this to any users who are non-tech savvy as it has a gui interface) and drag and drop.

this is untested as I just wrote it, but more or less should work from a unix system but you will have to adjust it for your needs:

Code:
#! /usr/bin/ksh

ftp=/usr/bin/ftp

PD=<local directory> 
TS=`/usr/bin/date +%Y%m%d`

$ftp -inv <host> <<__EOFTP > path/to/log/ftp.$TS.log 2>&1
user <username> <password>
lcd $PD
cd <path to directory>
ascii <or use whichever format you want
put `<filename>`
bye
__EOFTP

but keep in mind that is only for a specific filename. you would have to use
Code:
 prompt and mput

if you are importing or getting all files from that folder.

be sure to try this out manually first line by line prior to making this a consistent job.

desktop_color_depth(3alleg4)					  Allegro manual				      desktop_color_depth(3alleg4)

NAME
desktop_color_depth - Finds out the desktop color depth. Allegro game programming library. SYNOPSIS
#include <allegro.h> int desktop_color_depth(); DESCRIPTION
Finds out the currently selected desktop color depth. You can use this information to make your program use the same color depth as the desktop, which will likely make it run faster because the graphic driver won't be doing unnecessary color conversions behind your back. Under some OSes, switching to a full screen graphics mode may automatically change the desktop color depth. You have, therefore, to call this function before setting any graphics mode in order to retrieve the real desktop color depth. Example: allegro_init(); ... if ((depth = desktop_color_depth()) != 0) { set_color_depth(depth); } RETURN VALUE
Returns the color depth or zero on platforms where this information is not available or does not apply. SEE ALSO
get_desktop_resolution(3alleg4), set_color_depth(3alleg4), set_gfx_mode(3alleg4) Allegro version 4.4.2 desktop_color_depth(3alleg4)
