movedat Client

This command-line file transfer client can be used to browse, exchange, and manipulate files on a servedat server.  Its basic syntax is similar to the secure copy program, "scp":

Downloading (Get):
movedat [user[:password]@]host:<source> [<destination>]

Uploading (Send):
movedat <source> [user[:password]@]host:<destination>

The "host" may specify an individual server or a host group.

The command line client can also be used to browse folders, rename files, delete files, and create direcotires.  Unlike the graphical client, movedat is also capable of wild-card matching, piping data via stdio, displaying contents to stdout, and running server-side Object Handlers.

The movedat client includes many features to support embedding in scripts and other applications.  DEI Tech Note 0015 explains how you can use the features below to tightly integrate movedat as the transport component of automation and front-end solutions.

Windows and Unicode

All text generated by movedat itself, including prompts, error messages, and folder listings, uses UTF-8 character encoding.  When running movedat in a Windows console, non-ASCII characters may not display correctly unless you take the following steps:

See the Unicode section for more information about unicode character encoding.
