SCP and password on one line


ok i've read this other post Here where including the password was deemed a security risk....
BUT i have no problem so can someone help me withe providing scp with the password all in the same line?

ie: scp -r "something" root@0.0.0.0:/Applications/

I've tried using rootassword@0.0.0.0:/Applications/ but it gives me this error
Code:
ssh: Could not resolve hostname root: nodename nor servname provided, or not known
lost connection
yes the device im trying to scp to is an iphone with openssh installed

thanks for ze help

Hi,

The way you want to do it will not work (you cannot send the password with the scp command, there's no option for it).

You should take a look at pinniped's reply to the thread you refer to (this reply).

Hope this helps.
