FTP scripting Help

Hi,

I'm trying to do an FTP script that will read from a list of files and send only the files in that list.

Would this work? Does anyone have anything simpler.

Code:
ftp -nv <<EOF
open server
user username password
get $(nawk -F_ -f bbb.awk Filelisting.txt)
EOF

no that won't work..
read man page of ftp command and understand the limitation of that command...

Code:
ftp -nv <<EOF
open server
user username password
$(nawk -F_ -f bbb.awk Filelisting.txt | sed 's#^#get #')
EOF

or change your bbb.awk accordingly - you get the idea

Thanks.

Here's the contents to my bbb.awk file:

Code:
{
  d=substr($NF, 1, index($NF, ".")-1)
  split(d, dA, "-")
  print dA[3] dA[1] dA[2] "\t" $0
}

Code:
{
  d=substr($NF, 1, index($NF, ".")-1)
  split(d, dA, "-")
  print "get " dA[3] dA[1] dA[2] "\t" $0
}
