ascii-xfr - upload/download files using the ASCII protocol
ascii-xfr -s|-r [-ednv] [-l linedelay] [-c characterdelay] filename
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
The ASCII protocol transfers files line-by-line. The EOL (End-Of-Line) character is trans-
mitted 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 device is thus needed when downloading or
-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
-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.
When transmitting, pause for this delay after each line.
When transmitting, pause for this delay after each character.
file Name of the file to send or receive. When receiving, any existing file by this name
