NAME

       tomac - Transmit files to the Mac


SYNOPSIS

       tomac [ - options ] [ files ]


DESCRIPTION

       tomac  takes the files specified in tomac and transmits them to the Mac
       subject to the options specified.  If files also specifies  directories
       they are followed recursively, and all files found will be transmitted.
       If no files parameter is specified, binhex  reads  a  MacBinary  stream
       from  standard  input and transmits the files found; folder information
       is lost.


OPTIONS

       In the absence of any options, tomac  takes  the  specified  files  and
       transmits  them  to  to the Mac using the XMODEM protocol.  Directories
       named in files are followed recursively, all files found will be trans-
       mitted.   Files are assumed to be in MacBinary format.  However, if the
       filename ends with .info the file is assumed to be the info fork  of  a
       MacIntosh  file  split  amongst  more  than one file.  In that case the
       files with .data and .rsrc  extensions  are  also  read  (if  present).
       Also, if the info fork is mentioned in the parameter list, the names of
       data and resource forks can  also  be  mentioned,  but  those  will  be
       ignored  (this is to allow wild-card expansion by the shell.)  Further,
       if some form of AppleShare is supported by the installed  program,  and
       if the current directory, or one of the directories found during recur-
       sive processing, is a directory in the format of the supported  version
       of  AppleShare, those files will be handled according to the properties
       of AppleShare.

       -r     No intelligent file-processing is performed; all files named are
              assumed  to  be  plain resource files, and are transmitted as if
              they were MacIntosh resource files with creator "RSED" and  type
              "RSRC", unless another creator and/or type are specified.

       -d     No intelligent file-processing is performed; all files named are
              assumed to be plain data files, and are transmitted as  if  they
              were  MacIntosh  data files with creator "MACA" and type "TEXT",
              unless another creator and/or type are specified.

       -u     As -d, but the codes for CR and LF are interchanged.

       -U     Is a synonym for -u.

       -c creator
              Defines the creator name to be  used  if  one  of  the  previous
              options is specified.

       -t type
              Defines  the type name to be used if one of the previous options
              is specified.

       -l     List every file and directory processed.

       -i     Do not transmit files, give information only (implies -l.)

       -q     Ask the user for every file/directory whether it should be  vis-
              ited (implies -l.)

       -x     Use the XMODEM protocol for transmission.

       -y     Use the YMODEM protocol for transmission (not yet supported.)

       -z     Use the ZMODEM protocol for transmission (not yet supported.)

       -o     Use the pre-beta version of XMODEM.

       -T     Allow  for time-out detection during the protocol.  Normally you
              will not need this option  because  on  occasion,  when  network
              delays  do  occur,  time-out  detection  interferes  with a good
              transmission.  Also, when for some reason the connection is bro-
              ken  the program will normally receive a hang-up signal and ter-
              minate.  However, in some situations it might  be  necessary  to
              early  detect  time-outs (because of communication loss or what-
              ever, without loss of connection).  You should check whether use
              of this option has profits in your situation or not.

       -V     Gives  the  patchlevel  of  the  program, and other information.
              Other options are ignored and the program quits immediately.

       -H     Give short information about the  options.   Other  options  are
              ignored and the program quits immediately.


BUGS

       As this is a beta release, there may still be some problems.
