/REQUIRE filexfer.tf

/GETFILE_MUCK file [remote-file]
/GETFILE_LP file [remote-file]
/GETFILE_UNIX file [remote-file]

Downloads text remote-file from a MUCK, LP, or remote UNIX shell to file on the local host. If remote-file is omitted, file is used as the name on both ends. Do not use "wildcard" globbing characters in the file names.

When using /getfile_UNIX, an extra line of garbage may appear at the beginning of the downloaded file unless you first disable remote echo with "stty -echo".

Bug: if there is a log open for the current world, it will be closed by /getfile.

See: /putfile, /log
