       netread - read data transported over network using netwrite


       netread  [udp] [-f host ] [-c] [-C algorithm ] [-o file ] [-s] [-b] [-h
       <n> ] [-H] <n> ] [-q] [-v] [-vv] [-V] [-vV]

       netread is part of the netrw package. It is  a  simple  (but  powerful)
       tool  for  transporting  data  over  the  internet, in conjunction with


       The main purpose of netrw is to simplify and speed up file transfers to
       hosts  without an FTP server. It can also be used for uploading data to
       some other user. It is something like one-way  netcat  (nc)  with  some
       nice  features  concerning  data transfers. Netrw can compute and check
       message digest (MD5, SHA-1, and some others)  of  all  the  data  being
       transferred,  it  can  also  print  information on progress and average
       speed. At the end it sums up the transfer.


       udp    Changes the default TCP protocol can be changed to UDP.

       -f host
              Works in the firewall mode; connection is initiated by netread.

       -c     This option is ignored. Transmission checksum  is  activated  by

       -C algorithm
              Uses  the  specified  algorithm  for  checksum. This option also
              implies -c
               . Supported algorithms (the first is default): sha1 md5  rmd160

       -o <file>
              Writes data to file instead of stdout.

       -s     In  case  -o  option is specified, open the file for synchronous
              I/O. Otherwise, this option has no effect.

       -b     print speed in b/s instead of B/s

       -h <n> Prints `#' after each n KiB transferred (def. 10485.76).

       -H <n> Prints `#' after each n MiB transferred (def. 10.24).

       -q     Be quiet.

       -v     Be verbose.

       -vv    Be very verbose.

       -V     Show version.

       -vV    Show verbose version.


       0      no errors.

       1      some error occured.

       2      checksum validation failed.
