tnftp (command line FTP client)

tnftp is a port of the NetBSD FTP client to other systems.

The enhancements over the standard ftp client in 4.4BSD (and
derivatives) include:
* command-line editing within ftp
* command-line fetching of URLS, including support for:
- http proxies (see $http_proxy, $ftp_proxy)
- authentication
* configurable prompt
* context sensitive command and filename completion
* dynamic progress bar
* feature negotiation extensions from RFC 2389
(see `feat' and `remopts')
* extensions to ftp from the IETF ftpext working group
(see `mlsd' and `mlst')
* IPv6 support (from the WIDE project, see *Note below)
* modification time preservation
* paging of local and remote files, and of directory listings
(see `lpage', `page', `pdir')
* passive mode support, with fallback to active mode
* retrieval of filenames listed in a given file (see `fget')
* `set option' override of ftp environment variables
* TIS Firewall Toolkit gate ftp proxy support (see `gate')
* transfer-rate throttling (see `-T', `rate')
* uploading of files on the command line (see `-u')
* (Dante) SOCKS5 support (see *Note, below)

Previous features, currently disabled until a test system is available:
* SOCKS4 support

If you need SOCKS5 support, install network/dante before building this.

It's not possible to build a single tnftp binary with both IPv6 and
SOCKS5 support.

The binary with IPv6 support is built and installed as
"/usr/bin/tnftp.ipv6", with a symlink to "/usr/bin/tnftp". If
dante is installed, a 2nd binary is built and installed as
"/usr/bin/tnftp.socks". You can run it as "tnftp.socks", or, if desired,
adjust the symlink so the SOCKS binary is run by default:

# rm -f /usr/bin/tnftp
# ln -s tnftp.socks /usr/bin/tnftp

The package will still uninstall cleanly.

If you have dante installed but do not want to build tnftp with SOCKS,
you can export SOCKS=no in the environment.
