UTOPPYA(1)                  General Commands Manual                 UTOPPYA(1)

     utoppya - Topfield TF5000PVR DVB recorder file manipulation program

     utoppya [-f device] command ...

     utoppya is the userland interface to the Topfield TF5000PVR range of DVB
     recorders (nicknamed `Toppy') which uses the utoppy(4) device driver.

     The options are as follows:

     -f      Communicate with device instead of the default /dev/utoppy0.

     Using the services of the utoppy(4) driver, utoppya can perform the
     following operations, specified by the command operand:

     df      Display disk size and free space

     ls [directory]
             List the files in the specified directory.  Default is the
             Toppy's root directory.

     mkdir <directory>
             Make the specified directory.  You must supply the full pathname
             to directory.

     rm <pathname>
             Delete the file or directory specified by pathname.

     rename <source> <target>
             Rename the file or directory specified by the source operand to
             the destination file or directory specified by the target

     get [-prt] <toppyfile> [localfile]
             Copy toppyfile from the Toppy to localfile on the local file
             system.  If localfile is omitted, the file will be copied into
             the current directory and will be named using the last component
             of the toppyfile operand.  If localfile is `-', then toppyfile
             will be copied to the standard output.

             The following options are available for the get command:

             -p      Display a progress bar.

             -r      This option is useful if you wish to resume a previously
                     interrupted get command.  Instead of restarting from the
                     beginning of the file, the transfer will resume where it
                     left off.

             -t      Enable `Turbo' mode.  This instructs the Toppy to drop
                     everything and concentrate on transferring the file as
                     quickly as possible.  You will be able to watch live TV,
                     but all other functions, including changing channel via
                     the remote control, will be inoperative.

     put [-prt] <localfile> <toppyfile>
             Copy localfile on the local filesystem to toppyfile on the Toppy.
             If toppyfile specifies a directory on the Toppy, the last
             component of the localfile operand will be appended to the
             toppyfile operand.

             The options described for the get command (above) also apply to
             the put command.

     /dev/utoppy0 The default Topfield TF5000PVR instance.

     The utoppya command first appeared in NetBSD 4.0 and was inspired by
     `ftpd-topfield' written by Steve Bennett <msteveb at ozemail.com.au> and
     `puppy' written by Peter Urbanec <toppy at urbanec.net>.
