Use these scripts to handle processing after you have received a file. They are used for controlling print spooling, for managing notification facilities, and for other processing of incoming files after a successful file transfer is received.

The post processing shell scripts include xcompp, xcomend, xcomlp, and xcomntfy. These are provided with

Shells and Script Changes
XCOM Data Transport
uses the shell that is specified by the SHELL_CMD parameter for processing scripts. If you customize a script using a shell other than the
XCOM Data Transport
default, you should change the default. However, all other
XCOM Data Transport
scripts will then use that default which may affect the behavior of these scripts.
