ncftpbatch(1)               General Commands Manual              ncftpbatch(1)

NAME
       ncftpbatch - Individual batch FTP job processor

SYNOPSIS
       ncftpbatch -d

       ncftpbatch -l

       ncftpbatch -D

OPTIONS
   Command line flags:
       -d      Begin  background  processing of FTP jobs in the current user's
               $HOME/.ncftp/spool  directory.    This   returns   immediately,
               because a daemon process is spawned and ran in the background.

       -l      Lists the contents of the user's job queue.

       -D      This is like -d, except that the process does not become a dae-
               mon.

DESCRIPTION
       This program is responsible for processing background FTP requests.  It
       is  normally  only run by ncftp and not manually by a human being, how-
       ever you can run it to manually process the FTP job queue.

       The jobs are spool files written to a user's $HOME/.ncftp/spool  direc-
       tory  and  have a special format and file-naming convention (which con-
       tains when the job is to be run).  ncftp  runs  this  program  when  it
       needs  to, but if the ncftpbatch daemon dies unexpectedly the jobs that
       are left in the queue will not be processed until another  instance  of
       ncftpbatch is run.

       ncftpget  and  ncftpput  can also be used to submit jobs for batch pro-
       cessing, using those utilities' -b command-line flag.  If desired,  you
       can also manually create the spool files although this procedure is not
       documented here (see the manual page for ncftpspooler for more informa-
       tion on how to do that).

DIAGNOSTICS
       ncftpbatch writes to its own log file, the $HOME/.ncftp/spool/log file.
       This file should be examined to determine if any  ncftpbatch  processes
       are actively working on jobs.
