guys - appreciate it but this is not new development...

this is a pretty nice ftp/sftp engine built using PASE and uses Expect
script for passwords. Overall it has proven to be a pretty good

Just need to consider this... I'm honestly thinking that we simply do not
need to use the STMFCODPAG(*PCASCII) on our cpytoimpf when we move the ibmi
file to the IFS.

going to try that.

We have extensively used python to drive our sFTP scrips.

We have integrated pExpect in Python which gives you granular control of
the process.

Python is a super powerful addition to the IBM I with its ability to
issue sql commands to any db2 file on the I side and to run any IBM I
command from within Python.

You can also skip the "engine" and just write a python script or even a
simple bash shell script that does this end-to-end.

Such scripts can be launched in PASE from within a CL suitable for job
