Use straight ftp with wildcards. If on the machine with the source, once
into the ftp session, do the following:

cd remote_libname        /* Change Directory */
lcd local_libname        /* Local Change Directory */
bin                      /* BINary transfer */
mput q*.*                /* Multiple PUT with wildcards */

This changes your remote machine to the library where you want to put the
source members, changes your local machine to the library where the source
resides, makes the transfer binary (not ascii), and sends _ALL_ members in
_ALL_ files that start with Q to the remote machine.

Similar use of wildcards lets me delete all members of the same name from
all files in a library. I usually use this to do a mass delete of
performance data members.
