Net::FTP, part of the Libnet install, implements RFC959, the FTP protocol.

Who should use it?

  • Anyone wishing to transfer files to an FTP server
  • Anyone wishing to transfer data from STDIN to an FTP server
  • New Perl Scripters who need to practice with OO interfaces

What are the drawbacks or problems?

  • It does not allow you to upload scalar data as a file
  • It does not allow you to use streams other than STDIN


#!/usr/bin/perl -w use Net::FTP; my $destserv=""; my $destuser="root"; my $destpass="joph"; my $file="yourmom.jpg"; $ftp = Net::FTP->new($destserv) or die "error connecting\n"; $ftp->login($destuser,$destpass); $ftp->binary(); $ftp->get($file) or die "error downloading\n"; $ftp->quit();

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
