Node:Bookmarks, Next:, Previous:Configuration, Up:Top


Just like creating bookmarks for web pages in a browser, you can create bookmarks for ftp sites in Yafc. These can later be used for autologin to that site.

When connected to an ftp site, use the bookmark command (bookmark) to create a bookmark for that site. If you logged in with a username and password, Yafc will ask if you want to save the password in the bookmarks file. If you do, be sure it isn't world readable. By using the auto_bookmark keyword in the configuration file, Yafc can create bookmarks automatically for new sites.

The bookmarks are available to the open command, with tab completion.

The autologin information is stored in much the same way as in the ~/.netrc file used by standard ftp(1), except that the macdef option is not supported.

An entry must begin with a machine, default or local keyword.
