rcpDevice - copy a file or directory to or from a remote host
/usr/lib/desktop/rcpDevice operation [ name ]
rcpDevice is a simple shell script for copying a single file or directory
to a remote system. Its icon can be found on the Desktop Tools page of
the IconCatalog. Users can also launch it from a Unix shell command
Users may find it easier to copy files between hosts using the
accessworkstation(1) panel, available on the toolchest as Desktop >
Access Files > By Remote Login. That panel can be used to launch a
remote directory view or iconview(1). Users can then Ctrl-drag files
from the iconview to their desktop to import remote files, or drag files
from their desktop to the iconview to export files to the remote system.
Multiple files and directories can be copied at once using this method,
and the user does not need to have an identically named user account on
the remote system.
The rcpDevice script lets the user copy only one file or directory at a
time. If the user selects several icons, then drops them all on the
rcpDevice icon, the first icon selected will be the one copied to the
remote system. The user must have an account on the remote system in
order to use rcpDevice.
If the user selects the rcpDevice icon and presses the third mouse
button, the user can choose "Get files from another machine" or "Send
files to another machine" from the menu. Files the user gets from
another machine will be copied into the user's home directory.
When invoked from the command line in an IRIX shell, rcpDevice can handle
five different possible operations:
menu Shows definitions for "import" and "export".
Prints out "remote local".
query Provides a prompt asking whether the import or export operation
import Lets the user copy files to their home directory.
export Lets the user copy a file or directory to a remote directory.
The user can specify which file or directory to copy as name.
If no file or directory is specified at the command line, the
program will ask the user to type it in.

environment, see the IID(1) man page.
