What is the type of other server ( not the mainframe )?.
If you intend to move the files from the mainframe to some other host that is running some UNIX variants, Then easily you can write some shell script to initiate a connection to the mainframe over SFTP then pull out files to the other host that would be easier as majority of forum members never been exposed to mainframes.
Anyways what type of mainframe OS is this sever?

Why not just use scp on the command line (for one file)? If you have sftp, you probably have scp installed... "man scp" should help.

Which machines have sftp servers, and which have sftp clients.
If you have the client software for the mainframe it will likely be easier to push the file the the unix system.
To run it from the unix side, once you have a connection is simply:
Code:
$sftp mainframe
sftp>get gh.ij.kl(0) /u/scripts/mn
sftp>quit
$

Is the source file ASCII or EBCDIC ?
What record separator(s) does the source file use?

we cant use scp command because we need to write a script not a command to get those files

That doesn't make any sense. You can use scp in a script.

Code:
scp username@host:/path/to/remote/source /path/to/local/dest
scp path/to/local/source username@host:/path/to/remote/dest
