I wrote a little shell script (on CentOS) to download statistics from our APC UPS device. It works great, but everyday cron sends an email with this message:
WARNING! 1 bare linefeeds received in ASCII mode File may not have transferred correctly.
I also get that message when I get the file manually on the shell. The FTP part of my script looks like this:
ftp -in $ftpip <<END_FTP_DOWNLOAD user $ftpuser $ftppassword get data.txt bye END_FTP_DOWNLOAD
How can I get rid of this warning message which may disturb my colleagues?
The manual FTP connection looks like this. I tried to type "ascii" this time:
220 AP9617 Network Management Card AOS v2.6.4 FTP server ready. Name (192.168.0.50:myusername): username 331 User name okay, need password. Password: 230 User logged in, proceed. ftp> ascii 200 TYPE Command okay. ftp> get data.txt local: data.txt remote: data.txt 227 Entering Passive Mode (192,168,0,50,161,31). 125 Data connection already open; transfer starting.

The data.txt has between 500 and 800 lines and the last line is always empty.
