Bug Ls to grep

Dear

You can grep the output of ls by using following command

ls -ltr | grep rahul

In above command you are listing all the things in current directory but greping rahul in that directory so output for this command will be grepe rahul.

This should work:

Code:
ftp -n $1 <<! | grep $4
USER $2 $3
ls
bye
