NAME

       ascii-xfr - upload/download files using the ASCII protocol

SYNOPSIS

       ascii-xfr -s|-r [-ednv] [-l linedelay] [-c characterdelay] filename

DESCRIPTION

       Ascii-xfr  Transfers  files in ASCII mode. This means no flow control, no checksumming and
       no file-name negotiation. It should only be used if the remote system  doesn't  understand
       anything else.

       The  ASCII  protocol  transfers  files  line-by-line.  The  EOL (End-Of-Line) character is
       transmitted as CRLF. When receiving, the CR character is stripped from the incoming  file.
       The  Control-Z (ASCII 26) character signals End-Of-File, if option -e is specified (unless
       you change it to Control-D (ASCII 4) with -d).

       Ascii-xfr reads from stdin when receiving, and sends data on  stdout  when  sending.  Some
       form of input or output redirection to the modem device is thus needed when downloading or
       uploading, respectively.

OPTIONS

       -s     Send a file.

       -r     Receive a file. One of -s or -r must be present.

       -e     Send the End-Of-File character (Control-Z, ASCII 26 by default) when uploading  has
              finished.

       -d     Use the Control-D (ASCII 4) as End-Of-File character.

       -n     Do not translate CR to CRLF and vice versa.

       -v     Verbose: show transfer statistics on the stderr output.

       -l milliseconds
              When transmitting, pause for this delay after each line.

       -c milliseconds
              When transmitting, pause for this delay after each character.

       file   Name of the file to send or receive. When receiving, any existing file by this name
              will be truncated.

USAGE WITH MINICOM

       If you want to call this program from minicom(1), start minicom  and  go  to  the  Options
       menu. Select File transfer protocols.  Add the following lines, for example as protocols I
       and J.

       I  Ascii    /usr/bin/ascii-xfr -sv   Y   U   N   Y
       J  Ascii    /usr/bin/ascii-xfr -rv   Y   D   N   Y
