       bnftp - file transfer client


       bnftp [options] [servername [serverport]]


       bnftp  is  a  simple  program for downloading data files from a bnetd server.  These files
       include tos.txt, upgrade MPQ archives, and ad banners.

       If no servername is specified, localhost is assumed.  If no serverport is specified,  6112
       is assumed.

       After  the  program  is  started  it  will  connect  to the server and then prompt for the
       filename to download.  No directory components may be used in the filename.  The  file  is
       copied to a file with the same name in the current directory.

       The current version is available with the bnetd distribution at:



       This program assumes that the terminal will move to the beginning of the current line when
       the carriage return character (^M) is printed.  It also assumes  the  backspace  character
       (^H) will move one column to the left that character printed after that will replace those
       already on the screen.

       The terminal settings are not consulted for keybindings.  The following are assumed:

       ^H     delete the character to the left of the cursor

       ^J     accept current line

       ^M (return)
              accept current line

       ^T     transpose the last two characters

       ^W     delete word to the left of the cursor

       ^U     delete the whole input line

       ^[ (escape)
              cancel the current input line

       ^? (delete)
              delete the character to the left of the cursor
