       cadaver - A command-line WebDAV client for Unix.


       cadaver [-trp[-r file][-p host[:port]]][-V][-h] http://hostname[:port]/path


       cadaver  supports file upload, download, on-screen display, namespace operations (move and
       copy), collection creation and deletion, and locking operations.

       Its operation is similar to the  standard  BSD  ftp(1)  client  and  the  Samba  Project's
       smbclient(1).  A user familiar with these tools should be quite comfortable with cadaver.

       cadaver supports automatically logging in to servers requiring authentication via a .netrc
       file (similar to ftp(1) - see section "THE .netrc FILE" below).


       -t, --tolerant
              Allow cd/open into non-WebDAV enabled collection; use if the server or proxy server
              has WebDAV compliance problems.

       -r, --rcfile=file
              Use this rcfile rather than the default of ~/.cadaverrc

       -p, --proxy=host[:port]
              Connect using the proxy host "host" and optional proxy port "port".

       -V, --version

THE .netrc FILE

       The file ~/.netrc may be used to automatically login to a server requiring authentication.
       The following tokens (separated by spaces, tabs or newlines) may be used:

       machine host
              Identify a remote machine host which is compared with the  hostname  given  on  the
              command  line  or  as an argument to the open command.  Any subsequent tokens up to
              the end of file or the next machine or  default  token  are  associated  with  this

              This  is equivalent to the machine token but matches any hostname. Only one default
              token may be used and it must be after all machine tokens.

       login username
              Specifies the username to use when logging in to the remote machine.

       password string
       passwd string
              Specifies the password to use when logging in to the remote machine.

       Any other tokens (as described in ftp(1)) are ignored.


              Connects to the server, opening the root collection.

              Connects to the server using port  8022,  opening  the  collection

              Connects to a server called using SSL.


              Individual  user settings that can override cadaver defaults and to script cadaver.
              Can be changed by the "--rcfile" option.

              Login and initialization information used by the auto-login  process.  See  section
              "THE .netrc FILE" for details.
