We provide two scripts to facilitate the uploading and downloading of files for a tool. This allows users to upload their own input file to the tool via the web interface. The export script allows a user to download a tool simulation result directly from the tool via the web interface without accessing their home directory separately.
Both scripts are included in the filexfer application. filexfer can be used as a secondary application with standard tools as a means for users to transfer files between their computer and tool sessions. Rappture tools do not need the secondary application as file transfer methods are already included in the UI.
