Manual or automatic file upload from within Explorer.
Fling is software to help automate uploading or transferring files. It is typically used to maintain a web site on a remote hosted server or to automate backup of folders. The software supports both internet file transfer protocol (ftp) and network file transfer.
You can setup one or more "Fling Folders" on your local computer. You then work in these folders like any other folder on your computer. When any file is added or changed, Fling will upload the file to a remote ftp server or network folder. The operation can be automatic (upload as soon as the files are changed), at a preset interval (eg. every hour) or manually.
For example, if you keep a copy of your website on your computer, with Fling, you can upload a page at any time by right clicking on the file and selecting ‘upload’.
