NAMEcadaver - A command-line WebDAV client for Unix.
SYNOPSIScadaver [-trp[-r file][-p host[:port]]][-V][-h] hostname[:port]/path
DESCRIPTIONcadaver supports file upload, download, on-screen display, namespace operations (move and copy), collection creation and deletion, and locking operations.
Its operation is similar to the standard BSD ftp(1) client and the Samba Project's smbclient(1). A user familiar with these tools should be quite comfortable with cadaver.
cadaver supports automatically logging in to servers requiring authentication via a .netrc file (similar to ftp(1) - see section "THE .netrc FILE" below).

THE .netrc FILEThe file ~/.netrc may be used to automatically login to a server requiring authentication. The following tokens (separated by spaces, tabs or newlines) may be used:
- Identify a remote machine host which is compared with the hostname given on the command line or as an argument to the open command. Any subsequent tokens up to the end of file or the next machine or default token are associated with this entry.
- This is equivalent to the machine token but matches any hostname. Only one default token may be used and it must be after all machine tokens.
- Specifies the username to use when logging in to the remote machine.
- Specifies the password to use when logging in to the remote machine.
Any other tokens (as described in ftp(1)) are ignored.

- Connects to the server myserver.example.com, opening the root collection.
- cadaver zope.example.com:8022/Users/fred
- Connects to the server zope.example.com using port 8022, opening the collection "/Users/fred/".
- cadaver secure.example.com
- Connects to a server called secure.example.com using SSL.
- Individual user settings that can override cadaver defaults and to script cadaver. Can be changed by the "--rcfile" option.
- Login and initialization information used by the auto-login process. See section "THE .netrc FILE" for details.
