Trying to move my .cpp files from a remote unix box onto my XP desktop.
I'm using the ftp command to log in, then I'm using the get command to
copy my .cpp files. The commands get successfully executed, but I can find
the files that are copied. Here is what I do:
get filename.cpp folderNameOnMyCdrive
Try the syntax :
get filename.cpp folderNameOnMyCdrive/filename.cpp
A better solution :
ftp> lcd folderNameOnMyCdrive
ftp> get filename.cpp
I just tried using folderNameOnMyCdrive/filename.cpp
instead of folderNameOnMyCdrive.
The responce I get is " Not a directory".
When I try
I get the same responce "Not a directory"...
It looks like I'm not connected to my local XP box because the files are copied into my unix/home directory... ?
1. At your XP box, go to the directory you want the file to keep.
2. Then ftp to the unix box.
3. Get the file you want like this >> get filename.ccp <<.
4. When finish, disconnect and back to your XP box, you can find your filename.ccp in the directory you want to keep it.
windoze does not have the right slant on file paths.
e.g., unix p/b/c/d =~ windoze c:\p\b\c\d. Perhaps ftp follows unix convention. If you are still having problems,
Do you have a UNIX Question?
