simpleftp - Rudimentary FTP client
simpleftp url [...]
simpleftp is a Perl script that provides basic support for fetching files with FTP in a batch oriented fashion. It takes one or more FTP
URLs on the command line. The file(s) will be retrieved from the remote server and placed in the current directory with the same basename
as on the remote; e.g., <ftp://ftp.isc.org/pub/usenet/CONFIG/active.gz> is stored as active.gz in the current directory.
The script properly understands usernames, passwords and ports specified as follows:
simpleftp is an extremely poor substitute for more complete programs like the freely available wget or ncftp utilities. It was written
only to provide elementary support in INN for non-interactive fetching of the files in <ftp://ftp.isc.org/pub/pgpcontrol/> or
<ftp://ftp.isc.org/pub/usenet/CONFIG/> without requiring administrators to install yet another package. Its shortcomings as a general
purpose program are too numerous to mention, but one that stands out is that downloaded files by simpleftp override existing files with the
same name in the local directory.
