NAME

cadaver - A command-line WebDAV client for Unix.  

SYNOPSIS

cadaver [-et][-V][-h] http://hostname[:port]/path  

DESCRIPTION

cadaver supports file upload, download, on-screen display, namespace operations (move and copy), collection creation and deletion, and locking operations.

Its operation is similar to the standard BSD ftp(1) client and the Samba Project's smbclient(1). A user familiar with these tools should be quite comfortable with cadaver.
