Since I moved from a city to rural satellite Internet which has both peak and off-peak data usage allowances, I've been having to stay up until the off-peak time kicks in to start my filezilla queues (system backups, updates, etc).
I was hoping there would be a process queue schedule feature in Filezilla by now, but since there isn't, I decided to dive into the source and hammer one in.
I've included my patch to the svn revision 4558. It seemed to work on my workstation here which is running Fedora 16.
I normally do work in C, not C++
It's a rather simple on/off schedule mechanism. Go into the Edit menu -> Preferences and look for the new "Queue" page. You can either:
- set filezilla to start processing the queue on startup (useful to create a queue, exit, and just schedule filezilla to start later with system level scheduler such as at)
- enable scheduling (in which case you put a start and end time in the appropriate fields, 24 hour time, so midnight is 00:00)
Then create your queue, and leave filezilla running and the queue should start and stop processing at the specified times.
Filezilla is way more useful selecting specific files and managing the queue than command line clients, but needs a touch of automation (which is what computers are for).
