       cadaver - A command-line WebDAV client for Unix.


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


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