Create a .netrc file in User's home directory and add following line:
$cat ~/.netrc
default login anonymous password user@site
Remove line starting with user in script. Add -i for transfer of non interactive multiple files.
ftp -n -d -v -i << END | tee temp.txt
cd kern
mput *
I appreciate your effort, but for an end user its very hard to compile a .c file on linux.
Anyways, I am looking at your code, I will get back to you if i find any problem.

That's a neat trick; I'll have to remember it.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work 100% of the time; I've run accross a few FTP servers that don't like one part of it or another. Which, with respect to UNIX commands, is about par for the course with respect to compatibility, and portability. The existence of FTP servers that aren't running on UNIX at all further complicates matters...

In any event, that deals with automating FTP sign-ons, but how about other apps that prompt for a password, such as passwd? or smbpasswd?

Wow, I hope that's not the case... The code was written to be about as portable as it gets (that was one of the design criteria for that app: it had to be able to run on all sorts of different UNIX flavors without any untoward behavior(s) or effect(s) on a system. And, I included a Makefile that should automate things to an even greater degree.

I can't imagine anyone using a UNIX system (or some variant thereof) and not expecting to have to deal with gcc, make, et al. on a regular basis. I guess I'm not understanding your reservation(s) here...

At any rate, if you see anything in the code I wrote that interests you, or that I screwed up, please let me know. I / we use it on a daily basis and it's seemed to work wonderfully.
