       nd - Tiny little command line WebDAV interface


       nd [options] url


       nd  provides a simple command line interface to the RFC 2518 (WebDAV) server. If no option
       is specified, HTTP GET command is issued and writes response data to the standard output.

       The options are as follows:

       -c dest_url
               COPY url to the dest_url.  Use lock token if -t is specified.

       -f      Force override the content even when the MOVE or COPY target already exits.

       -v      View property information of url by PROPFIND. With -g option, only  the  specified
               property is displayed.

       -p file PUT file content to the url.  Use lock token if -t is specified.

       -g name Specify the property name for -v option.

       -e name=value
               Edit the property with name to value using PROPPATCH .

       -N namespace-url
               Specify the property namespace URL for -e or -g option.

       -P file POST file content to the url.  -T is used for the Content-Type.

       -T content_type
               Use  content_type  as  a Content-Type field value of the POST request.  Default is

       -d      DELETE url.  Use lock token if -t is specified.

       -l      LOCK url.  Use -o as owner, -s as scope, -i as timeout.

       -o owner
               Specify lock owner.  Default is USER environment variable.

       -s scope
               Specify lock scope (`exclusive' or `shared'). Default is `exclusive'.

       -i timeout
               Specify lock timeout interval. Default is `Infinite'.

       -u      UNLOCK url.  -t option is required.

       -t token
               Specify the lock token.

       -r      Set command execution `Depth' as `Infinity'.

       -a realm
               Specify authentication realm.

       -A realm
               Specify proxy authentication realm.

       -k      MKCOL url

       -m dest_url
               MOVE url to the dest_url.  Use lock token if -t is specified.

       -S      Print output using s-expression.


       http_proxy, HTTP_PROXY
               Specify HTTP proxy.

       USER    When manipulating a lock without an explicit owner option, the value  of  USER  is
               used to set the owner of the file lock.


       A  maintainer  of  the  Debian package has implemented Digest authentication on top of the
       original software. However, the upstream source uses the nanoHTTP  code  from  libxml2  to
       implement  the  HTTP  transport. Due to properties inherent in that code for detecting and
       following redirected target sites, there is no way to pull out the new address in order to
       insert  it  into the hashes necessary for the Digest method. Nd will therefore incorrectly
       answer with 'Bad request' to any method call  aimed  at  such  sites.  Using  the  correct
       logical name for the target will, however, produce a correct response from Nd.
