I want to pass my FTPLOGON user name and password via command line arguments. How is this accomplished?

You can pass a user name and password externally into Robo-FTP. When doing this, the shortcut to launch Robo-FTP might look like this:

C:\Program Files\Robo-FTP\Robo-FTP.exe -p1 user -p2 pw

Robo-FTP 3.9 and later

Robo-FTP 3.9 and later supports using variables for script command options.

The script command based on the above command line would look like this:

FTPLOGON "ftp.myserver.com" /user=%1 pw=%2

Robo-FTP 3.8.x and earlier

The required options to the FTPLOGON script command, /user and /pw, cannot be used with variables in Robo-FTP 3.8.x and earlier. Instead, use Robo-FTP SET command to build a complete command, and then use the PERFORM command to run it. For example:

SET cmd = FTPLOGON "ftp.myserver.com" & " /user=" & %1 & " pw=" & %2
PERFORM cmd
