How do I invoke Filezilla from the command line to upload the contents of a directory? I would also like to set parameters like overwrite all etc.

From help page all I see is options for opening Filezilla with specific server etc, but not to upload...

Consider using something like lftp or NcFTP, designed for command-line use.

FileZilla is awesome!!.. multithreded and resumable.. they have covered a lot of annonying edge cases – Quintin Par May 10 '10 at 18:44
FileZilla is a great program, but a standard FTP through the command line or through Cygwin will give you what you want. You can open multiple windows to do more work. – nicorellius May 10 '10 at 18:57
