comment Succinct way to respond to user input?
Yes: if I change the name of the function to something like user_input then the resulting code reads quite nicely.

revised Copy files from remote server to local, ignoring existing files (rsync not available)
fixed grammar ("with ignoring"???) and clarified question ("ignoring existing files on the destination server" is misleading when it's actually files that exist ***locally*** that he wants to ignore on the server)

comment How to execute a remote command and pass in local file as input?
Okay, I thought you were taking this approach instead of < since you thought writing was required (as was implied by the original title) but you were simply offering another way of doing it (which just happens to allow writing as a side effect).

Okay, I must have misunderstood your answer. I didn't try it, but inferred that since you were establishing a reverse tunnel (from remote to local host?) you were allowing the local file to be modified by the remote machine. Is that not the case?

revised How to execute a remote command and pass in local file as input?
OP simply wants the local file to be input, therefore is not acting *on* (that is, modifying) the local file. The previous title implied acting on (modifying) the file locally.

@Gilles: I think the original title was misleading, and you understood his question based on the misleading title. As far as I can tell, thought, he didn't actually want to act on the local file, but just pass it in as input. (But your answer is amazing, if I understand it correctly! Maybe I should ask the question you answered, just to give you a place to put the answer where you'll get proper credit for it.) I've edited the questions title to make it consistent with the body and with the chosen answer.
