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.
Works in the firewall mode; connection is initiated by netread.
-c This option is ignored. Transmission checksum is activated by
Uses the specified algorithm for checksum. This option also
. Supported algorithms (the first is default): sha1 md5 rmd160
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.
