RZ(1)                       General Commands Manual                      RZ(1)

       rz - receive a file using the zmodem protocol

       rz [-abepqvy] [-t timeout]

       -a   # CP/M to UNIX conventions

       -b   # Binary file

       -e   # Escape for all control characters

       -p   # Protect file if it already exists

       -q   # Quiet; opposite of verbose

       -t   # Set timeout in tenths of a second

       -v   # Verbose; opposite of quiet

       -y   # Yes, clobber existing files

       rz </dev/tty01 >/dev/tty01
                           # Receive a file

       The  XMODEM,  YMODEM,  and  ZMODEM family of file transfer programs are
       widely used on personal computers.  MINIX 3 supports ZMODEM,  the  most
       advanced  of  the set.  The programs sz and rz are used for sending and
       receiving, respectively.

       Rz and sz are programs  that  uses  an  error  correcting  protocol  to
       transfer  files  over  a dial-in serial port from a variety of programs
       running under various operating systems.  Rz (Receive ZMODEM)  receives
       files  with  the  ZMODEM batch protocol.  Pathnames are supplied by the
       sending program, and directories are made if necessary (and  possible).
       The meanings of the available options are:
         Convert  files  to UNIX conventions by stripping carriage returns and
         all characters beginning with the first Control Z (CP/M end of file).
         Binary (tell it like it is) file transfer override.
         Request 16 bit CRC.  XMODEM file transfers default to 8 bit checksum.
         YMODEM and ZMODEM normally use 16 bit CRC.
         Output file data to /dev/null; for testing.
         Force  sender  to  escape all control characters; normally XON, XOFF,
         DLE, CR-@-CR, and Ctrl-X are escaped.
         Protect: skip file if destination file exists.
         Quiet suppresses verbosity.
         Change timeout tenths of seconds (timeout follows flag).
         Verbose causes a list of file names to  be  appended  to  /tmp/rzlog.
         More v's generate more output.
         Yes, clobber any existing files with the same name.
