8. Browse remote host

Click on this Add remote files button from FTP toolbar as shown below:

A dialog box will appear to Browse remote host (see below). If the remote host is not connected, expect a delay to connect to the remote system first.

 

Keep

Displays files whose names contain tokens  specified in this edit box. For example, ".cpp info_ .java" in Keep will list files such as foo.cpp, my_file.java, one_file.java, info_tech.htm, etc. USe "*.*" to denote all files found in the current remote directory.

Exclude

This is opposite of Keep. Use *.* to exclude all files found in the current directory. (Do not annihilate each other).

Save History

If checked, TextMaestro saves each remote location accessed by the user inside Saved locations... combobox. Later they are displayed in Accounts Manager under Account Properties / Quick Drop. Finally, they are saved into hard disk upon application exit. That way they are available next time the application is launched.

 

The combo box (/public_html/Test area above) displays current directory.

 

Lower list box displays files and directories found in the current directory of the current host.

Changes current directory to the previous level. (Equivalent to cd .. in UNIX, or [-] in VMS).

Select a directory in the list and click on this button to enter into the selected directory. Alternatively, double click on a directory to enter into it. You can also manually write the directory name into the combo box area and hit on this button to go to that location.

Add a directory and its contents to the session recursively. If the directory contains a large number of files, this step may take several minutes. There is a lot to say about this feature. See Example 3.

Create a new directory under the current directory.

Delete selected files or directory.

 

If you close the Browse dialog by hitting OK, then the last accessed remote area here becomes the Default Remote Directory for the current session.

If the user selects some files from the second list box above and hits OK, those files are listed to the TextMaestro File list using the Default Local Directory of the current session as their local directory. Thus, all five File Attributes are assigned silently for the newly added files. However, those files are not transferred to the local area yet. To transfer to local area, you still need to click To Local button.

TextMaestro may leave a file attribute empty when it fails to fill it automatically.
