       ncftpbatch - Individual batch FTP job processor


       ncftpbatch -d

       ncftpbatch -l

       ncftpbatch -D


   Command line flags:
       -d      Begin  background  processing of FTP jobs in the current user's $HOME/.ncftp/spool
               directory.  This returns immediately, because a daemon process is spawned and  ran
               in the background.

       -l      Lists the contents of the user's job queue.

       -D      This is like -d, except that the process does not become a daemon.


       This  program  is responsible for processing background FTP requests.  It is normally only
       run by ncftp and not manually by a human being, however you can run it to manually process
       the FTP job queue.

       The  jobs  are  spool  files  written  to a user's $HOME/.ncftp/spool directory and have a
       special format and file-naming convention (which contains when the  job  is  to  be  run).
       ncftp  runs  this program when it needs to, but if the ncftpbatch daemon dies unexpectedly
       the jobs that are left in the queue will  not  be  processed  until  another  instance  of
       ncftpbatch is run.

       ncftpget  and  ncftpput  can also be used to submit jobs for batch processing, using those
       utilities' -b command-line flag.  If desired, you can also manually create the spool files
       although  this  procedure is not documented here (see the manual page for ncftpspooler for
       more information on how to do that).


       ncftpbatch writes to its own log file, the $HOME/.ncftp/spool/log file.  This file  should
       be examined to determine if any ncftpbatch processes are actively working on jobs.
