fcatcmd

FCAT(1)                     General Commands Manual                    FCAT(1)



NAME
       fcatcmd, fcat - copy files in the FSP database to stdout

SYNOPSIS
       fcatcmd [-r] filename ...

       fcat [-r] filename ...

DESCRIPTION
       For each file named in the argument list, fcatcmd reads the file and
       writes the content of the file to its stdout.

       fcatcmd will perform csh file name globbing based on file and directory
       information obtained from the FSP database.

       Since user's command shells generally cannot do the proper globbing for
       this program, it is recommended that user defines a shell alias or
       function to turn off command shell globbing before running this
       program.  csh example:

       alias fcat \(set noglob\; exec fcatcmd \!\*\)

ARGUMENTS
       -r -- forces fcatcmd to recursively show all files in given
       directories.

ENVIRONMENT
       The following variables associate this program with a FSP database:

       FSP_HOST
              The name or internet number of the machine with the FSP server.

       FSP_PORT
              The port number of the UDP socket used by the FSP server.

       FSP_LOCALPORT
              The port number of the UDP socket used by FSP client utilities.
              The only reason to define this variable is to ensure mutual
              exclusion of client commands when none of the udp packet
              multiplexing mechanisms are enabled during compile time.  You
              may pick any number not currently used for other purposes.

       FSP_DIR
              The current working directory of the client in the FSP database.
              The root of the database is /.

       FSP_TRACE
              If this variable is set, fcatcmd will display the number of
              kilo-byte blocks transferred as transfer progresses.  Also shown
              will be a measure of characters per second so that network speed
              has an indicator.  This variable has no effect when the standard
              output is a terminal.

       FSP_TIMEOUT
              If this variable is set, it contains the timeout value. The
              default value is 4.  No function if program was compiled without
              timeout code.
