NAME
       vstpg, vstpp - VisioBraille file transferring

SYNOPSIS
       vstpg [-ifbnd] [-s socketport] [-k keyname] [-o configname] file ...

DESCRIPTION
       vstpg (resp. vstpp) gets (resp. puts) files from (resp. onto) a VisioBraille terminal.

       For  communicating  with  the terminal, you must launch brltty with the BrlNet driver, and
       telling BrlNet to use the VisioBraille driver.

       Before putting on the terminal, file names are  truncated  to  8  characters  without  any
       extension.

       Before  getting	from  terminal, leading path and trailing extensions are removed, but put
       back for local filename.

COMMAND-LINE OPTIONS
       -i     ask for confirmation of transfer, for each file (on the terminal)

       -f     don't ask for such a confirmation (default)

       -b     if they exists, recursively rename the old files with an added .x suffix, just like
	      logrotate does

       -n     do not keep such backup file (default)

       -s socketport
	      use socketport as the port number instead of default for connecting to BrlNet

       -k filename
	      use filename as key path instead of default for reading BrlNet's authentication key

       -d     use current directory rather than the download directory (see vbs_dir below)

       -o filename
	      also read filename as config file

CONFIG FILE
       vstpg and vstpp read a configuration file $HOME/.vstprc which contains keywords or equali-
       ties, one per line (what follows a # is ignored).

       You can ask them to also read any other file thanks to the -o option.

       Here are keywords:

       backup make -b option the default

       nobackup
	      make -f option the default

       and equalities:

       keyname = filename
	      use this file instead of default, to find BrlNet's authentication key

       socketport = port
	      use this port number, instead of default, to connect to BrlNet

       vbs_ext = .ext
	      use .ext as an extension for downloaded files (.vis by default) this  is	overriden
	      on command line if an extension is provided in the file name

       vbs_dir = path
	      use  path  instead of current directory for putting files, except when using the -d
	      option, or if the filename begins with '.'

RETURNED VALUE
       1    syntax error on command line
       2    connection with BrlNet error
       3    Unix file error
       4    Protocol error
       16   interrupted by user

SHELL EXPANSIONS
       Beware of special chars: * and . are often expanded by your  shell,  hence  vstpp  *  will
       probably  do  what you want, putting every file existing in the current directory onto the
       terminal, but vstpg * may not do what you want: it will only get every file which  already
       exist in the current directory, skipping those you just created on your terminal !  If you
       want to get every file which exist in the terminal, you should use vstpg '*' or	something
       similar (please read your shell manual).

       The  same warning applies to other special chars, such as $, ~, &,... which should be pro-
       tected by surrounding arguments by quotes (') or by  using  single  backslashes	(\)  just
       before them (please read your shell manual).

BUGS
       The one we could find has been corrected :)
