FEI_Fetch is a wrapper for the FEI get utility. It will retry failed connections up to a maximum number of retry attempts, with a delay between attempts.

The maximum number of attempts can be passed with the command line option -Tries, otherwise it will default to five attempts.

The delay time can be passed in with the command line option -Delay, otherwise it will default to 120 seconds.

Exit Status

The number of files that failed to be processed; i.e. 0 on success. If a command line syntax error occurs the exit status will be 255.
