Re: ftp return valueby andreychek (Parson)

Yeah, the Net::FTP docs seem kind of lacking on this information. While I haven't tried the following answers out for myself, I got them from a program which works, so I'd assume they are correct:
1. when FTP->new() call was invoked
Well, this is just a typical constructor, the FTP code hasn't tried to do anything with a remote system yet. However, you can check for the return value of the login() call, like so:
2. when all the files were ftp'd. i.e., at FTP->quit
The return value of $ftp->quit would actually tell you if the quit() call was successful or not, which isn't what I think you're worried about.
What you'd need to do is check the call of each put() method:
Or, if you don't actually want to die, you could also just set a flag if the put fails. Just like login(), put returns a true value if successful, false otherwise.
Hope that helps!
Update: Yeah, what derby said, he managed to type it in quicker then myself, and I like his eval trick :-)
