Syntax object.KermitSendFile LocalFile, RemoteFile, [TransferType]



Transfers a file from the local computer to the remote system using the Kermit file transfer protocol. There is no IfFileExists option for this method because that aspect of the transfer is controlled by the remote system.


LocalFile Argument Type: String
Specifies a local file. This string can contain wildcard characters.

RemoteFile Argument Type: String
Specifies a file on the remote system. This string cannot contain wildcard characters. If this string is empty, the local file name is used to generate a remote filename.

TransferType Argument Type: Enumeration
Specifies what type of file is being transferred. The default is rcBinary. The rcBinary option is generally appropriate for most transfers, including transfers to bulletin boards. Use rcASCII when you're sure you want characters translated. The possible values are:


 Specifies an ASCII file transfer. If the KermitTranslateCharacters property is set to True, the following translations are performed:

· Character set translations (as specified on the Emulation tab in the Terminal Setup dialog box).

· Relevant ASCII File Translation options (as specified on the Translation tab in the File Transfer Setup dialog box).

 If KermitTranslateCharacters is set to False, carriage return/linefeed sequences may still be translated to record separator characters (if the ConvertEOLToSeparator property is set to True), and a Ctrl+Z character may still be read as an end-of-file indicator (if the ReadCtrlZAsEOF property is set to True), but no other translations are performed.


 Specifies a binary file transfer. Data in the file is not translated as it is transferred.


 File transfer type is determined by the file extension. Use these properties to determine which file extensions are linked to which transfer type:
