    Thank you so much. This is really a neat command, especially the way
it allows you to give the directory name so you don't have to move
around all the time. My biggest problem with Kermit is I sometimes
forget where I am dumping the files or worse yet which computer I am
working from! I'll have to find some good manual pages or play to see
what it does for permissions, recursive copies, overwrites etc.
