    Hello everyone,

    I'm currently under a project that requires me to write a program in Perl so that I can connect to the client's ftp server, grab the
    file, then close the connection.

    Now that I know this is doable in Perl, but is there a Perl Module already out there support these functions or would I have to write
    my own code to catch the ftp processes.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

    Rick

    The LWP module has an ftp part to it (and LWP is part of the standard distribution of perl).

    He actually needs Net::FTP from the libnet packages -> http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/modul...-1.0703.tar.gz

    Thanks for the help,

    Actually, I figured out this thing myself by digging through the search results off Yahoo last night, heh.

    freebsd's right, using NET::FTP is more than enough.
