Script Programming


Robo-FTP provides a powerful script language for use in automating unattended operations.


Command scripts can be scheduled to run automatically, executed directly from a Robo-FTP shortcut on the desktop, run programmatically via the COM interface, or selected interactively while Robo-FTP is running.


The Robo-EDIT script file editor provides keyword highlighting and other features specifically designed to help you develop Robo-FTP command scripts but you may alternatively use your favorite text editor or word processor capable of outputting ASCII text files. You could start with the Script File Wizard or learn the scripting language by customizing the included sample command scripts to satisfy your specific requirements. Unless otherwise specified, script files are assumed to have a file extension of .s.
