       ncftpbatch - Individual batch FTP job processor

       ncftpbatch -d

       ncftpbatch -l

       ncftpbatch -D

   Command line flags:
       -d      Begin  background  processing  of  FTP  jobs  in the current user's $HOME/.ncftp/spool directory.  This
               returns immediately, because a daemon process is spawned and ran in the background.

       -l      Lists the contents of the user's job queue.

       -D      This is like -d, except that the process does not become a daemon.

       This program is responsible for processing background FTP requests.  It is normally only run by ncftp  and  not
       manually by a human being, however you can run it to manually process the FTP job queue.

       The  jobs  are spool files written to a user's $HOME/.ncftp/spool directory and have a special format and file-
       naming convention (which contains when the job is to be run).  ncftp runs this program when it needs to, but if
       the ncftpbatch daemon dies unexpectedly the jobs that are left in the queue will not be processed until another
       instance of ncftpbatch is run.

       ncftpget and ncftpput can also be used to submit jobs for batch processing, using those utilities' -b  command-
       line  flag.  If desired, you can also manually create the spool files although this procedure is not documented
       here (see the manual page for ncftpspooler for more information on how to do that).

       ncftpbatch writes to its own log file, the $HOME/.ncftp/spool/log file.  This file should be examined to deter-
       mine if any ncftpbatch processes are actively working on jobs.
