in reply to Net::FTP Error Handling
in thread Net::FTP

When using this module. I cannot get the pwd command to work.

I am connected to an ftp server and am trying to use $ftp->pwd() and I get nothing in return. Is this dumping to a default variable that I am missing or is this really a bug?

    If you are following the above code try something like :
    #!/usr/bin/perl use Net::FTP; my $destserv=""; my $destuser="username"; my $destpass="password"; $ftp = Net::FTP->new($destserv) or die "error connecting\n"; $ftp->login($destuser,$destpass); my $mypath = $ftp->pwd(); $ftp->quit(); print "FTP Path: $mypath";
    Keep in mind that this is untested, its late and I am seriously sleep deprived.
    Have you checked out the documentation? There is a link to examples you can also have a look at.

    Hope this helps


      When that variable is added  my $mypath = $ftp->pwd(): to my code, I get the same results as just trying to call  $ftp->pwd();

      And by the same I mean that there is no repsonse at all. The Box that has the server on it allows me to login and type pwd so I know that it is supported on the server.

        Have you tried trapping for errors similar to the code in grantm's post above?:
        my $path = $ftp->pwd() or die "pwd failed: " . $ftp->code() . ": " . $ftp->message(); print "$path\n";
