Question Send a file by ftp

Hello!

Is there any chance that this single line command execute properly on aix? I have 0 knowledge on that platform!!

echo "User_FTP \nFTP_PASSWORD \nbin \ncd cad \nput /opt/lotus/office/general/Agent.csv \nquit" | ftp abc0.cie.com

If not, any other suggestion? A single line command would really help me!

Thanks to all!

Try this out in a shell script...

----------------------------
ftp -n ftp_server <<End_of_input
user username password
bin
ls
get file.bin
bye
End_of_input
-----------------------------

Hope this works for you.

No way to do this without a shell script but rather on a single command line ?

Thanks a lot

<< is called the "double input redirect" symbol.

You use it like this:
--------------------------
command << +++
--------------------------

This tells unix to read the lines following this command line in the script and input them all to the specified command.

All lines following this command line are input to the command until a matching string is encountered, in this case +++.

The +++ can be replaced with any string of characters, but they must match exactly at the beginning and the end. In this case, s93366 chose to use End_of_input as the string...
