Can't get automatic ftp working within system() method.

Hi,

I have a program that's creates a .netrc in $HOME.
When I at the AIX prompt write "ftp xxx.yyy.com", the ftp command
transfers a file to the remote host as I want.
When I in my code write "status = system( "ftp xxx.yyy.com" ).
I get the error below:
Connected to xxx.yyy.com.
220 buick FTP server (Version 4.1 Thu Sep 12 23:46:23 CDT 2002) ready.
Name (xxx.yyy.com:ZZ Z): 331 Password required for ZZZ.
530 Login incorrect.
It seams that the ftp command doesn't find the .netrc in $HOME.
And that automatic login doesn't work.
But the $HOME is correct when I do 'system( "echo Dollar home = $HOME"
);'

This code is running in AIX 5.3.

Does anyone have a clue?

Best Regards

..netrc is getting opened and is parsed by the ftp program. I think that
the password is wrong. Why don't you add -d option for the ftp command
to enable the debug messages. This enables you to see what message
transfer are going through between the server and the client.

ps. -d option for ftp gives debug messages in linux, hope it is same
for AIX

HI,

You were right the user name was wrong.
But the user name was the LOCAL user name on my computer.
I still have the feeling that ftp is not reading the .netrc file
althouh it should.
Just as I only wrote ftp ftp.www.com and had no .netrc file.

Best regards

The idea is to show only one of the <Baby_Div> while hiding all the others. At the moment all I have managed to do is to show each <Baby_Div> in turn as expected, but the problem is that once a <Baby_Div>.innerHTML is replaced by one of the procedures, it does not work anymore, ie, the <Baby_Div> content is not displayed anymore, once code replaces the actual 'Blah' string. Structure: <Top-Div> <Child_Div (6 in total)> <Baby_Span>
