FTP in DOS. mTCP

mTCP is a suite containing several utilities, one of which is FTP. It is similar to the FTP client of various Windows, running in Command Prompt.

In order to install and use mTCP:

1. mTCP [ Home page ]

2. Packet driver for Ethernet network card:

http://www.crynwr.com/drivers/

http://www.georgpotthast.de/sioux/packet.htm

3. Create a folder, for example C:\DRIVERS\. Put there: a packet driver for Ethernet network card.

4. Set up network. For example, by means of Microsoft Network Client 3.0 [ How-to page ]

5. Start packet driver. In the case discussed it is:

C:\DRIVERS\PCIPKT.COM 0x60

6. Unpack the archive with mTCP into a folder, C:\SOFT\MTCP for instance, and create a tcp.cfg file in it with the strings:

PACKETINT 0x60

HOSTNAME FTP_IN_DOS

The value of PACKETINT - the interrupt number used in the packet driver starting. The value of HOSTNAME - any.

7. Start DHCP.EXE (DHCP will set up mTCP for work with the network):

DHCP

8. Start FTP:

FTP [ FTP address / host ]

There will be a prompt for a name, after that - the password. Next, it is better to switch to passive mode:

XFERMODE PASSIVE

[ The list of the main commands supported by FTP of mTCP is available in ftp.txt, included in mTCP suite archive ]

To exit:

QUIT

mTCP - GNU GPL v3.

Selecting all in mc

 

Selecting all files and folders in a directory viewed in a panel of Midnight Commander. Achieving the same effect a does Ctrl - A under Microsoft Windows or Cmd - A in Mac OS X: Open a directory --> Ctrl - Shift - = --> Enter * [asterisk] --> Enter A directory with files and folders Selection options prompt Entering * [asterisk] All files and folders has been selected The keyboard shortcut of Ctrl - Shift - = is meant to type plus symbol. So just Shift - = may also happen to be enough. The "Using shell patterns" option in selection options prompt has to be checked on in order to make asterisk to work as the symbol for "all" or "any".

CSS. Target Opera only

 

CSS targeting Opera web browser only: This text is red in Opera HTML / XHTML. Code: <p>This text is red in Opera</p> CSS. Code: doesnotexist:-o-prefocus, p {color: #f00;} The -o-prefocus pseudo-class allows styling elements for Opera browser only. The code is placed in the common CSS file, not in a separate one as it is in case of Internet Explorer conditional comments. Source: http://www.opera.com/docs/specs/presto2.12/css/o-vendor/ [ 1 ] Opera 3.5 - 5.0 ignores "doesnotexist:-o-prefocus" and reads code as p {color: #f00;}. Opera 6.0 - 9.4 ignores the whole code starting "doesnotexist". [ 2 ] Internet Explorer 5.5+, Firefox 1.0+, Google Chrome, Safari 3.1+, SeaMonkey 1.0+, Netscape 7.2+, Mozilla 1.5+ ignore the whole code starting "doesnotexist". Older browsers like Internet Explorer before 5.5 or Netscape before 7.2 or Mozilla before 1.5 seem to ignore the uncommon, Opera 9.5+ specific code ("doesnotexist:-o-prefocus") and apply styles to what they understand - here it is the p tag; making the text in it red. [ 3 ] The text is red in Dillo 3.0.1 as well.
