Instructions for Anonymous RCP and RSH

You can use anonymous RCP to copy files and anonymous RSH to list directories.

  1. To copy a particular file to your system, type

    rcp<filename> <local_filename>

    where <filename> is the filename in the Netlib repository and <local_filename> is the local file in which you wish to have the data stored on your system.

    For example, to retrieve sgetrf.f from lapack, type

    rcp sgetrf.f

  2. To list files from a particular directory, type

    rsh -l anon ls <directory>

    (On some machines, the command is remsh instead of rsh).

    Normal ls options work; ls -l gets the size, etc. You can use metacharacters by putting the argument to ls in single quotes.
