NAME

       zftp - CERNLIB program to transfer ZEBRA formatted files over a network

SYNOPSIS

       zftp [hostname]

DESCRIPTION

       zftp  is  a file transfer program that supports the transfer of formatted, unformatted and
       ZEBRA RZ files.  (If you have no idea what ZEBRA files are, it is highly unlikely that you
       want to use this program instead of a standard FTP client.)  Formatted files are typically
       KUIP macros, command or EXEC files, source code or even FZ ALPHA  exchange  format  files.
       Unformatted  files may be FZ binary exchange format or EPIO files or any other binary file
       with fixed length records.

       zftp also provides LS, CD, PWD and RSHELL commands.  It provides a common interface on all
       systems  and  the possibility of macros (via KUIP).  It avoids the problems of file format
       conversion that occur when transferring binary files between VMS and UNIX  systems.   zftp
       comes  with  the traditional KUIP user interface, including a HELP function that describes
       the available commands.

       Please note that, like many other FTP programs, zftp transfers unencrypted passwords  over
       the network.  It should therefore be used only within a trusted LAN.
