logo Set - set delete and replace operations

Return to Introduction     

Use the set options to determine how script commands that delete or replace a file are processed.  The typical use of this command is to set an option on so that a script can run without the need for the operator to respond to confirmation prompts.


When an option is set, it remains in effect until it is reset by another set command or SDI FTP is restarted.
