FTP : Non Interactive Execution

Post by ex-lurke » Tue, 06 Aug 1996 04:00:00

I need to perform some repetitive tasks using ftp,
including :

- traversing directory structures
- compressing and deleting files on the source
- ftp'ing files 8)

The commands will be executed in a variety of


What's the best (or most appropriate) tool for the
task.  I've had a couple of suggestions :

- shellscripts
- PERL API implementing ftp commands

comments welcomed



1. Install interactive package non-interactive during Jumpstart

Hi Guru's.

I've build a package which contains a postinstall scripts. During installation
of this package while the machine is running, it asks me wether or not the in-
stall has to continue since a script will be runned as root.

During a installation of this package in jumpstart, the system hangs; I guess
it hangs because it expects input (I cannot verify this, since the log doesn't
mention it). How can I install the package without answering all kind of questions?
