Several options are set with parameters of the form '-xi'. These are given after the COPY command and can be given in any order.
COPY infilename.ex1 outfilename.ex2 -x1 -x2 ...
They can also be used at the operating system prompt.
ST infilename.ex1 outfilename.ex2 -x1 -x2 …
Overwrite Output File Warning
By default, Stat/Transfer will ask permission before overwriting files. If a file exists with the same name as the specified output file, you will be prompted for permission before the file is overwritten.
You can use the parameter '-y' to suppress the warning messages.
COPY infilename.ex1 outfilename.ex2 -y
In this case, if an output file already exists with the same name, it will be overwritten with no warning.
Suppress Messages at the Stat/Transfer Prompt
When running a transfer from the Stat/Transfer prompt, by default a number of messages monitoring the progress of the transfer will appear.
The parameter '-q' will suppress all messages from Stat/Transfer, with the exception of error messages and warnings that a file is about to be overwritten.
COPY infilename.ex1 outfilename.ex2 -q
Show Messages at the Operating System Prompt
When run from the operating system prompt, Stat/Transfer will only issue error messages and warnings that a file is about to be overwritten.
If you wish to see messages monitoring the progress of the transfer, use the parameter '-v' to get more verbose output.
ST infilename.ex1 outfilename.ex2 -v
