Hi,

I am new to shell scripting,and i was planning to write a script that will FTP files to destination folder.
All configuration should be done through a properties files.I was planning that All configuration should be done
through a properties files. and finally the output should be Files are transferred

I have developed a properties file named ftp.properties and the content of this file are...

Code:
# these are the sample valus taken
135.23.34.212 userid password sourcefolder destfolder
135.23.34.212 is the remote ip and rest all is clear

I have also developed another main script file named ftp_script.sh which will read the properties file(ftp.properties)
contents are...

Code:
#!/bin/sh 
while read line
do
        RemoteIP=`echo $line | cut -d' ' -f1`
        userid=`echo $line | cut -d' ' -f2`
        passd=`echo $line | cut -d' ' -f3`
        spath=`echo $line | cut -d' ' -f4`
        dpath=`echo $line | cut -d' ' -f5`
        ftp -vin >> ftp.log <<-!
        open $RemoteIP
        user $userid $passd
        cd $dpath
        lcd $spath
        put $file
        bye
        !
done</your/ftp/properties/filepath/ftp.properties
Now I want to change the structure of my properties file(ftp.properties) in the below format...

Code:
#############################################

#Properties file for Ftp files

#############################################


#remote ip of the machine 
RemoteIp=135.23.34.212

#This is the source directoy from where the files will be picked up
SrcFolders=/home/Administrator/files


#This directory path should end with a slash(/)
DestFolder=/home/Administrator/output/


#the pattern of the files
SourcefilePattern=*.xml


# your user id 
userid=youruserid


#your password 
password=yourpassword
Could you please guide me what should be the contents of main script file named ftp_script.sh ...as now there will be changes in
ftp_script.sh....!!
