       yafc - Yet another FTP client


       yafc [options] [proto://][user[:password]@]hostname[:port][/directory]


       This  manual  documents  Yafc.  Yafc  is  quite  a  powerful  ftp client.  It is a console
       interface to the ftp protocol. If you're looking for a nice GUI client, Yafc  is  not  for
       you.  If  you,  however,  use ftp often and want a fast, powerful, friendly client Yafc is
       here for you...

       Some of the features are recursive get/put/ls/rm,  nohup  transfers,  colored  ls,  cached
       directory   listings,   autologin  and  bookmarks,  powerful  aliases  and  extensive  tab


       -a, --anon
              Try an anonymous login,  ie  login  as  "anonymous"  with  your  email  address  as
              password.   Your   email   address   is   first  looked  for  in  the  config  file
              ("anon_password"), then in the $EMAIL environment variable. If it's  not  found,  a
              guess is made from your user- and hostname.

       -d, --debug
              Print all messages sent to/from server.

       -D, --dump-rc
              Prints the default configuration file to standard output.

       -m MECH, --mechanism=MECH
              Try  security  mechanism  MECH when logging in to the host specified on the command
              line. This will override any 'mech' options in  yafcrc  or  bookmarks.  MECH  is  a
              colon-separated  string,  supported  values  are  "krb4",  "krb5"  and  "none". The
              mechanisms are tried in the order specified.

       -n, --norc
              Do not read the users configuration file. This will cause yafc to use  its  default

       -p, --noproxy
              Do  not  connect  via the proxy. This should be used if connection to a host on the
              local network.

       -q, --quiet
              Do not print the welcome message with copyright information when starting Yafc.

       -r FILE, --rcfile=FILE
              Read another configuration file.

       -t FILE, --trace[=FILE]
              Enable creation of trace file. Trace files are mainly for  debugging  and  includes
              every response and command Yafc receives/sends. If FILE is specified, use that file
              instead of the default  trace  file  (~/.yafc/trace/,  where  pid  is  the
              process  id  number  of  Yafc.)  Trace files can grow quite large and can safely be

       -u, --noauto
              Do not login automagically to the host specified on the command line. You can still
              use bookmark aliases, though.

       -U, --noalias
              As ---noauto, but bookmark aliases is disabled (for host on command line).

       -v, --verbose
              Print all responses received (without response code.)

       -w, --wait=TIME
              Use  a  different  time  to  wait  between  connection  attempts, in seconds.  This
              overrides the value set by "connect_wait_time" in the configuration file.

       -W, --workdir=DIR
              Use a different working directory for  configuration  files  and  temporary  files.
              Default is ~/.yafc.

       -V, --version
              Print version information on stdout and exit successfully.

       -h, --help
              Print a short help description on stdout and exit successfully.
