mput is a command line tool used for uploading multiple files or directories to a remote server using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP). Here are ten key points about mput:

  1. Functionality: mput enables users to upload multiple files or directories from their local machine to a remote FTP server with a single command.

  2. Efficient upload: The tool is designed to facilitate the batch upload process, saving time and effort by eliminating the need to manually upload each file one by one.

  3. Recursive upload: mput supports the recursive mode, allowing users to upload entire directories and their subdirectories along with all contained files.

  4. Wildcard support: Users can utilize wildcards such as "*" or "?" to specify file patterns or filter criteria for uploading specific groups of files.

  5. Confirmation prompts: Before uploading each file, mput prompts the user for confirmation, ensuring that accidental or unintended uploads are minimized.

  6. Parallel uploads: Depending on the FTP server's capabilities, mput can initiate simultaneous parallel uploads of multiple files, speeding up the overall upload process.

  7. Overwrite options: When a file with the same name exists on the remote server, mput provides options to either overwrite the existing file, automatically skip the upload, or ask for confirmation.

  8. Transfer reliability: mput automatically checks the integrity of each file during the upload process, ensuring successful and error-free transfers.

  9. Session settings: Users can set various session-specific configurations such as the FTP server address, port number, login credentials, transfer mode (binary or ASCII), and local and remote directory paths.

  10. Compatibility: mput is a common command line tool available in most FTP client applications or as a standalone utility, making it widely compatible across different operating systems, including Windows, macOS, and Linux.
