Can somebody help me in getting the logic to write a perl ftp script which can ftp files from multiple source directories to multiple target directories. Thanks.

Answer: FTP files from multiple source directories to multiple target directiories

The easiest way to do this is to use Net::FTP. Here is a simple bit of code that FTPs a single file:

use Net::FTP; chdir "/tmp"; $ftp = Net::FTP->new("", Debug => 0); $ftp->login("anonymous",'-anonymous@'); $ftp->cwd("/pub"); $ftp->get("that.file"); $ftp->quit;
Then use this basic idea in a loop over files for each source directory.
