Option to show command prior to execution

Howdy folks

I've got a simple idea for WinSCP that I think would be helpfull for learning

If you have ever used NmapFE (Nmap Front End) you'll will see that prior to the execution of a command from the GUI, the actual command line is shown on screen showing you what it really does. I hope you know what I mean

I think it would be cool if WinSCP optionally had the ability to show on screen what is really about to happen showing the commands in the correct context

For myself, it would be a great learning tool

Take care

Steve

What kind of command do you want to see?

Option to show command prior to execution

Hi Martin

BTW, I've been using WinSCP since around 1.0 and it has always been rock solid. It's been really cool to see it grow into something so powerfull and popular. I hope you and your team enjoy your well deserved financial donation

Back to the subject at hand

Here's a screenshot of nmapfe

<invalid hyperlink removed by admin>

Since nmapfe is really a GUI for command line nmap, the 'Command:' at the bottom of the screen shows what nmap command is really going to be executed.

Since alot of the things Winscp do can be done with command line scp, could it be possible to include an optional 'Command' or 'Commands' window as well?

Thanks

Take care

Steve

With command line scp you can transfer files only. And it does not support most of the transfer options (transfer mode, exclusion masks, etc.).
