    SYNOPSIS

           sendfile  [  -stMgduzvolSPiqQV  ]  [  -c="  comment" ] [ -C=program ] [
           -ps=[my_ID] ] [ -pe=[to_user] ] [ -m LIMIT ] file [...]  user[@host]
    
           sendfile -a="archive" [ -uviqQ ] [ -c=" comment" ]  [  -C=program  ]  [
           -ps[=my_ID] ] [ -pe[=to_user] ] file_or_directory [...]  recipient
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           sendfile sends files to the specified recipient.
    
           On  the receiving site there must be a SAFT-server (Simple Asynchronous
           File Transfer) installed like sendfiled  which  stores  incoming  files
           into the recipients spool-directory.
    
           SAFT knows about 4 file types:
    
           BINARY  Byte-stream file which will not be modified.
    
           SOURCE  Record  oriented  program  source file. Only EOL will be trans-
                   lated.
    
           TEXT    Human readable text files. EOL and the character set (like Ger-
                   man umlauts) will be translated.
    
           MIME    Multipurpose  Internet  Mail  Extension  file as defined by RFC
                   2045-2049.
    
           Files can be sent compressed or pgp-encrypted and/or pgp-signed.  As an
           extension  to  SAFT,  sendfile is able to send multiple binary files in
           one archive file.
    
           Default mode for sendfile is sending compressed binary files.  Compres-
           sion will be disabled for hosts which are inside your LAN and for files
           which cannot be compressed.
    
           With the helper program sfconf you can easily configure sendfile.
    
    
    

    ARGUMENTS

           You have to specify at least one file name and the recipient's address.
           An address can be specified as:
    
           user
               a local user or a sendfile alias (see below), e.g.: framstag
    
           user@host
               an user on a remote host, e.g.: framstag@bofh.belwue.de
    
           saft://host/user
           -s      Send in source mode (not needed if sending to a unix host).
    
           -t      Send in text mode (not needed if sending to a unix host).
    
           -M      Send MIME file (must be external composed before!).
    
           -g      Send  in guessed mode: sendfile tries to guess the correct mode
                   (source, text or binary). This will not work in every case  and
                   not on all platforms!
    
           -i      Print more transaction information.
    
           -v      Verbose mode: show SAFT protocol messages.
    
           -V      Show version information and exit.
    
           -u      Send uncompressed.
    
           -z      Send compressed.
    
           -a      Send  files  or  whole  directories as one archive (binary mode
                   only).  You have to specify an archive name.
    
           -d      Delete previous sent file. No wildcards allowed.
    
           -o      Overwrite already sent file(s) with same name.
    
           -P      Read file from stdin. You must specify a file name, too.
    
           -S      Spool file into outgoing queue for later processing.  You  must
                   run a sendfiled which supports this mode.
    
           -l      List files in the outgoing spool.
    
           -q      Quiet mode 1: print no transfer messages.
    
           -Q      Quiet  mode  2:  print no transfer, information or warning mes-
                   sages.
    
           -c      Add a short comment to a single file.
    
           -C      Force usage of specified compression program (gzip or bzip2).
    
           -pc     Encrypt file(s) with pgp (IDEA symmetric).
    
           -pe     Encrypt file(s) with pgp (public key).
    
           -ps     Add pgp signature(s) to the file(s).
    
           -m      Limit the maximum thruput (in KB/s).
