       cadaver - A command-line WebDAV client for Unix.

       cadaver    [-trp[-r    file][-p    host[:port]]][-V][-h]   http://host-

       cadaver supports file upload, download,  on-screen  display,  namespace
       operations (move and copy), collection creation and deletion, and lock-
       ing operations.

       Its operation is similar to the standard  BSD  ftp(1)  client  and  the
       Samba  Project's smbclient(1).  A user familiar with these tools should
       be quite comfortable with cadaver.

       cadaver supports automatically logging in to servers requiring  authen-
       tication via a .netrc file (similar to ftp(1) - see section "THE .netrc
       FILE" below).

       -t, --tolerant
              Allow cd/open into non-WebDAV enabled  collection;  use  if  the
              server or proxy server has WebDAV compliance problems.

       -r, --rcfile=file
              Use this rcfile rather than the default of ~/.cadaverrc

       -p, --proxy=host[:port]
              Connect  using  the  proxy  host  "host" and optional proxy port

THE .netrc FILE
       The file ~/.netrc may be  used  to  automatically  login  to  a  server
       requiring  authentication.  The  following tokens (separated by spaces,
       tabs or newlines) may be used:

       machine host
              Identify a remote machine host which is compared with the  host-
              name  given  on  the  command line or as an argument to the open
              command.  Any subsequent tokens up to the end  of  file  or  the
              next machine or default token are associated with this entry.

              This  is  equivalent  to the machine token but matches any host-
              name. Only one default token may be used and it  must  be  after
              all machine tokens.

       login username
              Specifies  the  username  to  use  when logging in to the remote

       password string
       passwd string
              Specifies the password to use when  logging  in  to  the  remote

       Any other tokens (as described in ftp(1)) are ignored.

              Connects  to  the  server, opening the root

              Connects to the server using port 8022, opening
              the collection "/Users/fred/".

              Connects to a server called using SSL.

              Individual  user settings that can override cadaver defaults and
              to script cadaver. Can be changed by the "--rcfile" option.

              Login and initialization  information  used  by  the  auto-login
              process. See section "THE .netrc FILE" for details.
