Ok wild stab in the dark as i am new to this. I am trying to sutomate an FTP from UNIX box to another UNIX box. Further to aumating an FTP, the file needs to be renamed and a small amount of editing which is the same editing each time. I know i can do this using VI but can i automate this? And lastly i have to have the originating UNIX box sequence these files. Hopefully this makes sense. Can anyone help??
