in reply to Using FTP Without any Modules

Hi perl_devel,

are you Figo Sub - the person that Madhulika wrote this for? Are you Madhulika and you found it at your work?

If you are posting other people's code then you should say it is not yours and where you got it from.

I decided to have a Google for this because I figured someone who would have written that shell could have figured out how to do exactly the same thing in Perl.

    He never said the code was his own, only that he was using it and that he needed help with it.
