  This perl program will read a list of file names and
  get those files from a specified host.  The user    
  must first create a text list of the files to fetch 
  and enter the host, username, password and remote   
  directory that houses the files in the code.        
#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use Net::FTP;

$hostname = 'user defined';
$username = 'user defined';
$password = 'user defined';

$home = 'user defined';

# Open the FilesToGet.txt file which contains a list of files to be searched.
open(FilesToGet, ') { 
  $TheFile = $_;                         
  $INFILE = $TheFile;

  $ftp = Net::FTP->new($hostname);
  $ftp->login($username, $password);

  $ftp ->cwd($home),"\n";

  #get the file

    Um, I'm hoping your cutnpaste lost something, but there's trouble between the open(FilesToGet, ' and the {, as it might be:
    open(FilesToGet, "FilesToGet.txt") or die "can't open FilesToGet.txt: $!"; while (<FilesToGet>) {
    and then you can skip
    $TheFile = $_; chomp($TheFile); $INFILE = $TheFile;
    and just do:
    chomp; $ftp->get($_);
    but to make life even easier:
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use Net::FTP; use strict; my $hostname = 'user defined'; my $username = 'user defined'; my $password = 'user defined'; my $home = 'user defined'; my $debug = 5; open(FilesToGet, "FilesToGet.txt") or die "can't open FilesToGet.txt: $!"; my $ftp = Net::FTP->new($hostname); $ftp->login($username, $password); $ftp->cwd($home); while (<FilesToGet>) { print STDERR "Getting $_" if $debug > 3; chomp; $ftp->get($_); } $ftp->quit;

    I costumized the script to fit my needs, i hope you like it, it uses arrays and it also takes a hostlist as a argument

    I only coded perl for 1,5 week now, thats why its kind of ugly :o)

    #!/usr/bin/perl # # Entries in the file and host list should be seperated with # a new row. spaces or other signs will make the script fail. # You can use comments if you put a '#' sign in front of the # line, but it will make the printout of number of hosts and # files that are beeing backuped to show the wrong numbers. # use Net::FTP; use strict; my $usage = "$0 filelist hostlist username password directory\n"; my $filelist = $ARGV[0] or die "$usage"; my $hostlist = $ARGV[1] or die "$usage"; my $username = $ARGV[2] or die "$usage"; my $password = $ARGV[3] or die "$usage"; my $home = $ARGV[4] or die "$usage"; my $debug = 5; my @hostarr; my @filearr; my $nr = 0; open(FilesToGet, $filelist) or die "can't open filelist $filelist: $!\n"; open(HostsToGet, $hostlist) or die "can't open hostlist $hostlist: $!\n"; @hostarr = <HostsToGet>; chomp @hostarr; my $hostarrnr = @hostarr; @filearr = <FilesToGet>; chomp @filearr; my $filearrnr = @filearr; print "\nHosts: $hostarrnr\n"; print "Files: " . ($filearrnr * $hostarrnr) . "\n"; print "\n"; for (my $nr1 = 0; $nr1 < $hostarrnr; $nr1++) { next if ($hostarr[$nr1] =~ /^#/ | undef); print STDERR "Connecting to $hostarr[$nr1]\n" if $debug > 3; my $ftp = Net::FTP->new($hostarr[$nr1]); $ftp->login($username, $password); $ftp->cwd($home); for (my $nr2 = 0; $nr2 < $filearrnr; $nr2++) { next if ($filearr[$nr2] =~ /^#/ | undef); print STDERR "Getting $filearr[$nr2]\n" if $debug > 3; $ftp->get($filearr[$nr2],("$hostarr[$nr1]." . $filearr[$nr2])) +; } $ftp->quit; }
