I've been asked to produce a process to produce a PDF rom a postscript file and then FTP this across to another server. I have done the first part but am concerned that when I FTP this across, it could/will be picked up by the follow on system before the file is completely generated.

Is it possible to make the file have a tmp (or similar) extension until the file is fully formed and then renamed to the PDF extension?

There's no such procedure to send a tmp file and rename afterwards, but I don't think that's necessary as the FTP server should prevent the file being available before it's fully transferred.
