in reply to need to ftp file

If you are using Net::FTP as has been suggested you need to use the dir() method to get a remote list, and then use foreach to go through that looking for the file you want (which I assume matches some pattern). Can you confirm you are using Net::FTP ?

[perldigious]: but... but... perldigious is the unvirtuous kind of lazy in this case. :-)
[perldigious]: Just kidding. Thanks 1nickt, I'll go ahead and do it the right way. An extra set of brackets and a little extra indentation isn't too much to ask.
[karlgoethebier]: perldigious: perhaps a block if you are paranoid ;-)
[choroba]: but undef %hash and %hash = () both work, too, but the first one keeps the memory allocated, while the latter makes it available for other parts of the program.
[choroba]: iirc
[perldigious]: karlgoethebier: Well it is a pretty old and complicated (for me) bit of code I wrote (poorly by my current standards), so I'm expecting everything to break when I add the scoping and find out what else is undesireably scope changed. :-)
[perldigious]: Ah, thanks choroba, that sort of thing was precisely what I was wondering when I asked.
