What is the purpose of saving and loading a queue/session file?
30 Sep 2005 03:33 AM
A queue/session file is simply used to hold a group of files to transfer, and the source and destination. You save the queue to a queue file (.tbx file) using menu [Session | Save queue]. After that you can load the queue file any time to restore the content in the transfer queue and transfer those files again. You can load a queue file using the menu command or by simple drag and drop or by feeding it at the command line (see help document section 'Other information|Command line options' on how to use the command line options). Queue is useful when you need to transfer (download or upload) a certain group of files regularly (see our topic Scheduled File Transfer with TurboFTP
The queue file (.tbx file) is in human readable text format and you can create and modify it manually with a text editor. It can of course be generated programmatically (due the its easy-to-understand format) and, combined with the command line options of TurboFTP, can be used for dynamically changing transfer needs. The tbx format is documented in Help|Other information|Session(tbx) file format.
