Hi,

Very interesting links:

http://aplawrence.com/Unixart/scripting_ftp.html
http://pwet.fr/man/linux/formats/netrc

Both suggest the use of init macro to do what you want.

Hi,

The links provided have good examples. I will repeat them here:

in your ~/.netrc (in your home dir and have 600 as the file perms - chmod 600 ~/.netrc)

- example 1

machine somewhere.com login mylogin password mypass macdef
init
lcd /appl/fp/merge
cd /appx/data/50/XFR/Data
put artrx.tab TRXFER.dat
quit

Here when you

ftp somewhere.com

the login user name is mylogin
the password is mypass

and the init macro is executed after the successful login.
it change local and remote directories and put a file and quit

- example 2

machine someothermachine.org login whatever password pass macdef
init
hash
bin
prompt off

The 2nd example will run the commands hash , bin , and prompt off and then wait for your next command
