- Subject: scripting sftp in a bash script
(I have a feeling this has been asked before, but I can't find it.)
I'm trying to use sftp within a bash script on cygwin (version 1.5.5 on
winXP pro). Ideally I'd like to use a 'here document' rather than using
an external batchfile, that is,
sftp /dev/stdin <<EOF
The problem is the /dev/stdin. This normally isn't necessary for 'here
documents,' and isn't with ftp. However, with sftp, for reasons I don't
understand, you need to add the /dev/stdin to use here documents. This
doesn't seem to work under cygwin.
Does anyone know how to produce this behavior?
Or, are there other ways to script/call sftp (or a _secure_ equivalent)?
