Using Macros in sftp command

Hi,

I've some existing scripts wherein am using ftp + .netrc. I've defined my macros in .netrc file.

I want to switch to sftp now but it seems it doesn't support macros and .netrc and it gives "command invalid" error.

Is there any other alternative?

Note: I don't want help for automating sftp process. I just need it for defining and calling macros.

Please help.

Regards,
PS
