New SENDnnn Commands Published by: Bob Cozzi on 08 Mar 2012 view comments(4)

I'm about to release 3 new CL commands and want feedback on them.

  • SENDOBJ - Send an object (generic/full/*all) in a library to another system.
  • SENDSRC - Send source member(s) to another system.
  • SENDSAVF - Send a save file (generic/full/*ALL) to another system.

All three use the FTPFILE command under the covers to send the content to the remote location. The first two automatically create save files and then FTP those save files, the SENDSAVF command (obviously) sends an existing save file. Up to 300 generic-enabled save file names may be specified.

I had others in the pipe line and prototyped, but these three seemed to be all that's really needed in day-to-day operations.

What do you people think?
