|ASCII-XFR(1)||Linux Users Manual||ASCII-XFR(1)|
The ASCII protocol transfers files line-by-line. The EOL (End-Of-Line) character is transmitted as CRLF. When receiving, the CR character is stripped from the incoming file. The Control-Z (ASCII 26) character signals End-Of-File, if option -e is specified (unless you change it to Control-D (ASCII 4) with -d).
Ascii-xfr reads from stdin when receiving, and sends data on stdout when sending. Some form of input or output redirection to the modem device is thus needed when downloading or uploading, respectively.
- Send a file.
- Receive a file. One of -s or -r must be present.
- Send the End-Of-File character (Control-Z, ASCII 26 by default) when uploading has finished.
- Use the Control-D (ASCII 4) as End-Of-File character.
- Do not translate CR to CRLF and vice versa.
- Verbose: show transfer statistics on the stderr output.
- -l milliseconds
- When transmitting, pause for this delay after each line.
- -c milliseconds
- When transmitting, pause for this delay after each character.
- Name of the file to send or receive. When receiving, any existing file by this name will be truncated.
