2.1 Invoking

The options are as follows:

Enables debugging.

Disables file name globbing.

Turns off interactive prompting during multiple file transfers.

Restrains ftp from attempting "auto-login" upon initial connection. If auto-login is enabled, ftp will check the .netrc (see below) file in the user's home directory for an entry describing an account on the remote machine. If no entry exists, ftp will prompt for the remote machine login name (default is the user identity on the local machine), and, if necessary, prompt for a password and an account with which to login.

Enable packet tracing.

Print a command-line prompt (optionally PROMPT), even if not on a tty.

Be verbose.
