Actually it should be a FILE transfer utility from linux to MSDOS (should be a free command line  utility)

but hypterminal does not work on command line..
ie can i execute it from a batch file without seeing the interface???
well all i need is one without one interface...

I got some idea on cygwin until now i was able to download all required softs to compile lrzsz to windows platform but it wont work compile properly during make it says missing ':' colon on some line

an when i checked it it was alright...
??
so i shifted to dsz.exe which i think will do the trick but it has to be bought for 20$ ....I dont have that kind a dough
..
so if u have any idea or code or even a link which works it would be very helpfull

regards

one more thing it has to be a freeware Vndyke is not ..
i need it to be embedded in my own sync software which is very much costumized for my needs..

But you can try it out.
Another way is using uuencode/uudecode and terminal logging/pipes etc...
lrzsz works with Xmodem, which is provided by HyperTerm too, Xmodem at least to flash modems...

ok u may 100% right but the point here is ...
this i need a command line dos utility which i call from a vc++ or vb program which initiates the file transfer utility and the  files are uploaded into the SIMPUTER (kind of  a palmtop actually running on a linux kernel arm architecture).
so now saying all that i ahve already found one solution to this ...and that is the DSZ program which is 20$ but i still can use it wihtout advanced features ( i dont need em ..so no money wasted :)  ).
now i have been able to send files to my SIMPUTER but it wont get recieved by it ... any idea about the sz commands...
i used
       sz file >/dev/ttySA0
and sometimes
       sz  -yf file >/dev/ttySA0


ttySA0 --> is my SIMPUTER 's  com1
now something happens on my DOS pc but it says

Byte -1 attempt 1 got timeout
Byte -1 attempt 2 got timeout
...
...
Byte -1 attempt 2 got cancelled

then it exits but i knwo it is communicating with it since it stops exactly when the sz on my SIMPUTER exits ...

so can u give me good working sz command and steps to solve this ??

kermit has command line versions for both linux and dos: zaurus kermit (arm/linux) is at http://www.killefiz.de/zaurus/showdetail.php?app=792  dos kermit is around, but a quick search found one place with it is http://xfiles.erin.utoronto.ca/pub/windows/kermit/
