To execute local commands inside an as400 ftp client session, use the !
command aka syscmd
get src1 qcblsrc.src1
! CHGPFM FILE(library/qcblsrc) MBR(src1) SRCTYPE(cbl)

Subject: FTP question
I have an FTP job that will transfer a COBOL copybook from a VSE/ESA
system to a library/sourcefile on the iSeries. The process works fine,
but when the sourcefile member is first created the member "type" is
undefined. Is there an FTP command I can issue to set the source type?
I know that I can add a second step after the FTP and issue a command
remotely to do this:
CHGPFM FILE(library/sourcefile) MBR(member) SRCTYPE(type)
but I was hoping to accomplish the entire task via FTP. TIA!
