.bashrc & .bash_logout

I wonder if its possible to get a bash_logout to work. .bashrc wors fine with sftp, but i cant manage to get a .bash_logout to work. is this supported by winscp or could this be possible for a future version?
would be a great feature.. really great for people with clustered servers, as we for example have set up 3 webservers and a few ppl are uloading stuff to to the master with winscp. so it would be really neat to make a rsync in the .bash_logout and synchronize with the slaves after uploading... doing this in cron every couple of minutes isnt quite as elegant as this would be. or does any1 got another suggestion how this can be done?

thx a lot ....
and keep on the good work with winscp, i really like this litte program...

Re: .bashrc & .bash_logout

.bashrc is not invoked by the client, but by the server. So in the same way, the .bash_logout must be invoked by the server. I cannot add any support for this to WinSCP. It is natural, as obviously the scripts are platform dependent. For example there are so such scripts on Windows.

thx for the fast answer. as i found out the .bash_logout is only executed when issuing a "exit", "logout" or "bye". think the problem is, that winscp just closes the session...

What protocol are you using, SCP or SFTP? With SCP I can maybe issue 'exit' command before logout. But SFTP protocol does not have anything like this.

Is this problem solved?

Hi
I am experiencing the same problem with .bash_logout. Has this been fixed in some winscp version, 2002 was a while ago?

Well, this is not a bug. And the functionality has not been implemented, as there was no demand for that. Added to tracker though.
