sz - Send files using ZMODEM


sz [ options ] file


sz sends files using the ZMODEM transfer protocol. A number of options control the transfer characteristics:


Double delay tolerance. This effectively doubles the time that sz allows for responses over sluggish packet-switched networks.


Send the file’s full pathname — the prefix to the file’s location plus the file’s name.


Text mode. This mode converts end of line characters (newlines) to be compatible with all operating systems. Include this option whenever text files are sent to ensure proper newline conversion. Newline characters are Control-M in Apple II and Macintosh operating systems, Control-J in UNIX, and Control-M Control-J in MS-DOS.
