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 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
       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 existing 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
