fexsend(1) CLI client for the F*EX service


[OPTIONS] file... [@] recipient... [special options] -f # recipient... -x # [-C -k -D- K]


F*EX (Frams' Fast File EXchange) is a service to send big (large, huge, giant, ...) files from a user A to a user B. This manual page documents briefly the fexsend command.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
