NAME
       flscmd, fls - list the contents of a FSP database

SYNOPSIS
       flscmd [ unix ls flags ] filename ...

       fls [ unix ls flags ] filename ...

DESCRIPTION
       flscmd lists the content of the FSP database.  All usual flags and
       usages for the unix ls command are accepted.

       flscmd 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 fls \(set noglob\; exec flscmd \!\*\)

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_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.

BUGS
       flscmd is based on 4.3 ls code.  It inherits any bugs found in 4.3 ls.
       In addition, only four pieces of information for each file and
       directory are available through FSP: name, time, size, and type.  All
       other information that flscmd display are for compatibility purposes
       only and are forged locally.
