Now I understand.  When I thought that I was adding a destination by using
the second parameter, /rob/*, what in fact I was doing was adding more
files to send, in addition to the first parameter /rob/spool2*.txt.  Thank
you for clearing this up.

perform strange.



I don't know if things are different in V5R1, but on V4R5, MPUT treats
each file listed as one of the files to transfer. So,
      mput /rob/spool2*.txt /rob/*

would first put everything matching spool2*.txt and then put anything
matching /rob/* to the remote server.

MPUT does not have an argument for the remote filename.

This behavior is consistent with Win98, Linux and FreeBSD's FTP clients
as well.
