fgrabcmd, fgrab - download files from the FSP database
fgrabcmd [-[f|o]|u|t|n|a|c|r|p] filename ...
fgrab [-[f|o]|u|t|n|a|c|r|p] filename ...
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 direc‐
tory 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 pro‐
gram. csh example:
alias fgrab \(set noglob\; exec fgrabcmd \!\*\)
-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
-n -- forces fgrabcmd to refuse to overwrite files with identical
-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.
See fsp_env(7) for list of used environment variables.
If fgrab is interrupted, the file being copied is deleted nonetheless.
