Hello. I am using FreeBSD 6.0 and Bash as my shell. I
am following a tutorial to create a shell script to
copy some files. It works perectly exept for 2 points.
Here is the article -
Here is the script -
temp="/tmp/$(basename $0).$$" ; trap "/bin/rm -f
echo "taylor" > $temp
echo "cd $targetdir" >> $temp
for file in *
if [ -f $file ] ; then
echo "put $file $file" >> $temp
echo "skipping $file: not a file." >&2
echo "quit" >> $temp
ftp $remote < $temp
One problem is that the password must be entered
manually, I have spent a good part of the day
experimenting but can't seem to automate this. Can the
password be entered using the script?
The other problem is that it copies the actual file.
What command would I look at to copy only images
(.jpg) for example?
Thanks in advance.
