Can we do some thing like ftp ing multiple files in one script

Example input.txt has all files names to be ftped

input.txt ------
a.tar
b.ccp
c.perl

i need to ftp all the files present in input.txt


i tried something like this

#! /usr/bin/ksh

HOST=remote.host.name
USER=whoever
PASSWD=whatever
cat input.txt | while ln=`line`
do
exec 4>&1
ftp -nv >&4 2>&4 |&

print -p open $HOST
print -p user $USER $PASSWD
print -p cd directory
print -p binary
print -p put $ln

wait
exit 0

done




but this gets hanged after ftping the first file
then i have to give a Ctrl C to come out of it
