ncftpbatch(1)                                       ncftpbatch(1)

NAME
       ncftpbatch - Batch FTP job processor daemon

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 daemon.

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

       The  jobs  are   spool   files   written   to   a   user's
       $HOME/.ncftp/spool directory and have a special format and
       file-naming convention (which contains 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.

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