bnftp - file transfer client


bnftp [options] [servername [serverport]]


bnftp is a simple program for downloading data files from a bnetd server. These files include tos.txt, upgrade MPQ archives, and ad banners.

After the program is started it will connect to the server and then prompt for the filename to download. No directory components may be used in the filename. The file is copied to a file with the same name in the current directory.

This program assumes that the terminal will move to the beginning of the current line when the carriage return character (^M) is printed. It also assumes the backspace character (^H) will move one column to the left that character printed after that will replace those already on the screen.

The terminal settings are not consulted for keybindings. The following are assumed:

delete the character to the left of the cursor
accept current line
^M (return)
accept current line
transpose the last two characters
delete word to the left of the cursor
delete the whole input line
^[ (escape)
cancel the current input line
^? (delete)
