A script file is an ASCII text file that contains a sequence of FTP (or SFTP) commands.
Each command must be on a separate line.
Space and tab characters can precede the command on a line.
Use a semicolon character (;) for comments. The FTP Client ignores comment text.
You can use comments to explain one or more lines of code. For example:
;The following lines connect to the server and change ;the working directories to PREPRESS (client) and ;PRESS (server). open forum thomasp XOYRCNEL973L9L96O376ONMO770L35L7NMO87PM79 lcd c:\prepress cd /press
You can also add a comment at the end of a command. For example:
set transfer-disposition unique ;do not overwrite files mput script is s*.doc ;copy the .DOC files
NOTE:Semicolons are not supported for comments in scripts supplied to the sftp command line using the -B option. Use the number sign (#) to mark comments in these batch files.
