Several Atomic Energy Commission installations are planning to
enter the network in the (hopefully) near future. These sites
include Argonne National Laboratory (IBM 360/195), Lawrence Berkeley
Labs, (CDC 7600), and New York University (CDC 6600). Our
applications make early implementation of an RJE facility imperative,
and although we are resigned to the necessity of implementing FTP, we
would like to avoid RJE protocol at least in the first go-around. We
would like to be able to use FTP to transfer a file, have it queued
for execution, and return output and status information.
To this end we propose to implement local conventions within the
site dependent PATHNAME parameter of the FTP. Specifically, the
following commands are specified:
STOR RJE.JOB<rest of pathname> queue this file for execution
(STOR/RETR) RJE.PR < > transfer remote job print file
(STOR/RETR) RJE.PU < > " " " punch "
(STOR/RETR) RJE.MT < > " " " magtape "
RETR RJE.STAT < > retrieve status of remote job
The job execution parameters are not part of the protocol, but
must be specified in the standard site dependent control cards which
are transmitted with the file. These parameters also determine the
output disposition, and the output can be retrieved by the user via
RETR, or (optionally) automatically by server initiation via STOR.*
The RETR RJE.STAT causes the server to create a file with the status
information and transfer it to the user. The FTP user/acct/pass
logon is used only to validate the data transfer, not the job's right
to execute, and to identify and distribute the output.

RFC 551 August 1973
We are concerned that we may have overlooked some problems which
are obvious to more knowledgeable people and invite (and request)
* note that in this case the RJE server is an FTP user.
