    Perl & FTP


    I need to find a good tutorial on how to connect to an FTP site and download files through Perl. I need to setup a cron job to run a perl script. Does anybody know where one is. Also which mods would you need to do this?

    Thanks in advance,

    This is very easy.

    Go to the cpan (www.cpan.org) and read the documentation about Net::FTP or Net::FTP::Common.

    Net::FTP::Common looks like a very simple way to do your automation, and has pretty good examples, too.
