FTP client that meets these requirements?

Hi All,

Does anyone knows an FTP client that meet these basic requirements?

-Runs in the console therefore not a gui based but a command line based like the normal ftp program.
-auto detects ascii / binary format files.
-runs in linux.
-free and opensource.

Filezilla should be fine but it doesn't support ascii / binary auto detection via console. Pro ftp cannot and some ftp does the job but have to pay.

Any other suggestion? Smilie
