NAME

       fgrabcmd, fgrab - download files from the FSP database

SYNOPSIS

       fgrabcmd [-[f|o]|u|t|n|a|c|r|p]
       fgrabcmd [-[f|o]|u|t|n|a|c|r|p] filename ...

       fgrab [-[f|o]|u|t|n|a|c|r|p]
       fgrab [-[f|o]|u|t|n|a|c|r|p] filename ...

DESCRIPTION

       When  used  without  arguments,  a  list of file names is read from the
       standard input.  When arguments are given, the arguments are  taken  to
       be  the  list of file names.  For each file named in the list, fgrabcmd
       copies the file to the client’s current working directory in the client
       machine,  and  deletes it from the FSP database.  It is guaranteed that
       multiple concurrent grab  actions  appear  to  be  mutually  exclusive.
       fgrabcmd  will  perform  csh  file  name  globbing  based  on  file and
       directory information obtained from the FSP database.

       Since user’s command shells generally cannot do the proper globbing for
       this  program,  it  is  recommended  that user defines a shell alias or
       function to  turn  off  command  shell  globbing  before  running  this
       program.  csh example:

       alias fgrab \(set noglob\; exec fgrabcmd \!\*\)

ARGUMENTS

       -p -- preserve date/times of original file.

       -f | -o -- forces overwriting of files during an fgrab.

       -u -- forces unique filenames (appends a unique integer to each copy)

       -t  --  forces overwrite of local file if download is successful.  This
       has the drawback of possibly leaving behind temporary files with  names
       like .fsp.####

       -n  --  forces  fgrabcmd  to  refuse  to overwrite files with identical
       names.

       -a | -c -- forces fgrabcmd to try and append data to a partial file.

       -r -- forces fgetcmd to recursively get all files in given directories.

       The default mode is for fgrabcmd is to create unique file names.

ENVIRONMENT

       See fsp_env(7) for list of used environment variables.

BUGS

       If  fgrab is interrupted, the file being copied is deleted nonetheless.
