Receive binary options (MVS/TSO and VM/CMS)

Options include:

Carriage Return and Line Feed. CRLF (x'0D0A') is added at the end of each record.

The transferred file is appended to an existing local file that has the same name, if one exists. If APPEND is not specified, the transferred file overwrites the existing host file. Also, if APPEND is specified, EOF is removed from the end of an existing file.

The transfer stops if the file already exists. This option can be used to protect against accidentally erasing an existing file.
