Uploading a Directory via FTP in the Command Line

Hello,

Is there a way to upload a directory via ftp in the command line in a single line? I'd be looking for something like this:

ftp -username me -password 12345 /Users/me/mywebsitefolder /publichtml/

But I can't figure out the proper syntax.

Thank you for any help.

not with the 'bare-bone' ftp clients that come with most OSs (e.g. Solaris).
Look into wget and/or lftp clients.
