Checking files in ftp location

I am having a requirement to check whether files were there in the ftp location and if the files were not there then need to send a mail to someone.Suppose there were files like A,B,C,D,etc.. if the file A was not there then mail to someone similarly for all the files.
Thanks for your help.

Regards,
Nimu

hmmm here are the possible steps that you can follow..
1)connect to remote location via ftp
2)run this command
Code:
dir . temp

3)this will create a file in your local dir which contains all files names of remote location
4)grep for the filename which you wanna search from that temp file
5)if the required file is not present then send the mail..
