take a look at llnlxftp and llnlxdir. llnlxftp allows you to ftp between
any two hosts, neither of which need be your own.... xdir has a windoz
look and feel allowing you to drag and drop files from remote locations.
get them from http://www.llnl.gov/liv_comp/xftp.html
you will also need the motif header files and libraries, I used
I had to make a minor edit to the str.h file (where both the xdir and xftp
compiles hurl with the following error):
In file included from aconnect.c:61:
str.h:62: macro `strchr' used without args
str.h:64: macro `strstr' used without args
append ' || defined(linux)' to line 57 of str.h so the compile includes
for xftp, I also had to edit log.c when the compile hurled with:
log.c:86: conflicting types for `sys_errlist'
/usr/include/stdio.h:557: previous declaration of `sys_errlist'
make: *** [log.o] Error 1
append ' && !defined(linux)' to line 85 to ignore the 'extern char
BTW, I'm using RedHat 6.2.
my only complaint with these utilities is the default font that was used....
