SYNOPSIS

ftp-put LocalFilename RemoteHost [RemoteFilename] [:debug=true] [:buff=2048] [:rename=true]

DESCRIPTION

ftp-put Opens a connection to the ftp server on the RemoteHost, and puts, using ftp passive mode, the LocalFilename to a temporary filename constructed from the RemoteFilename. When the data transfer is complete a RENAME operation is issued. Therefore the RemoteFilename appears atomically. This is very important when uploading files to an area from which other ftp and http processes are actively serving. If :rename=false then the file is stored directly without renaming.

Username and password may be picked up from environment variables (RemoteHost_USER and RemoteHost_PASS) or the user is prompted.

If LocalFilename is . (dot) then the data is read from standard input.

EXIT STATUS

Errors result in a non-zero exit status.

BUGS

The password is received using the built-in unix getpass, which on some systems (Solaris) truncates the user input to 8 characters. If the remote system can handle longer passwords then this is a problem.
