(resp. vstpp) gets (resp. puts) files from (resp.
onto) a VisioBraille terminal.
communicating with the terminal, you must launch brltty with
the BrlNet driver, and telling BrlNet to use the
on the terminal, file names are truncated to 8 characters
without any extension.
from terminal, leading path and trailing extensions are
removed, but put back for local filename.
command line options
ask for confirmation of transfer, for each file (on the terminal)
don’t ask for such a confirmation (default)
if they exists, recursively rename the old files with an added .x
suffix, just like logrotate does
do not keep such backup file (default)
use socketport as the port number instead of default for
connecting to BrlNet
use filename as key path instead of default for reading
BrlNet’s authentication key
use current directory rather than the download directory (see
also read filename as config file
vstpg and vstpp read a configuration file
$HOME/.vstprc which contains keywords or equalities, one
per line (what follows a # is ignored).
You can ask them to also read any other file thanks to the
Here are keywords:
make -b option the default
make -f option the default
keyname = filename
use this file instead of default, to find BrlNet’s
socketport = port
use this port number, instead of default, to connect to BrlNet
vbs_ext = .ext
use .ext as an extension for downloaded files (.vis by default)
this is overriden on command line if an extension is provided in
the file name
vbs_dir = path
use path instead of current directory for putting files, except
when using the -d option, or if the filename begins with
Beware of special chars: * and . are often expanded by your
shell, hence vstpp * will probably do what you want,
putting every file existing in the current directory onto the
terminal, but vstpg * may not do what you want: it will
only get every file which already exist in the current directory,
skipping those you just created on your terminal ! If you want to
get every file which exist in the terminal, you should use
vstpg ’*’ or something similar (please read
your shell manual).
The same warning applies to other special chars, such as $, ~,
&,... which should be protected by surrounding arguments by
quotes (’) or by using single backslashes (\) just before
them (please read your shell manual).
The one we
could find has been corrected :)
