you do that like the way to do for ftp, using here document
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. ftp -n server << EOF
  2. ...
  3. ..
  4. EOF
so for smbclient, you do the same:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. smbclient //server/share -U user .... <<EOF
  2. put file
  3. ....
  4. EOF
you can try this method out.
