Hello -- Is there any examples on how to use the http: syntax? I have a url that point to a list of
directories and files that I would like to copy -- does this syntax work like the iftp cmd such that I can
copy an entire directory tree?

HTTP doesn't allow listing directories, so no. (It's an intrinsic limitation of the protocol itself, not just TCC.)

If, on the other hand, you can access the site through FTP, then you can use COPY /S to recurse through directories, just like on your local machine. FTP does support listing directories.
