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

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.
