Nice guide, ++.

But don't forget binary!

The version you wrote will work fine if you're running from a Unix client box to a Unix server.

But if the client side is a Win32, Mac, or VMS box (and maybe if the server side is) you want to make sure you call

$f->binary();
before you do any other operations. From the perldoc
The protocol also defines several standard translations which the file can undergo during transfer. These are ASCII, EBCDIC, binary, and byte. ASCII is the default type, and indicates that the sender of files will trans- late the ends of lines to a standard representation which the receiver will then translate back into their local representation.

    Is it possible to execute 'ls -la' via Net::FTP. I'm using the module but the server creates files that begin with a '.' and I need to see those.

[MidLifeXis]: heh.
[MidLifeXis]: Most likely it is a code that some undocumented system, hidden behind layers of IT, deep in the bowels of the building under the machine room floor, reads that code to keep a presence switch from going off. :-b

[GotToBTru]: oh I know what it is .. but it is a number only slightly useful to me and of no possible use to our customer
[MidLifeXis]: Whew - you just saved the free world. <o)
[GotToBTru]: i guess it's a placeholder, the code will only fill it in if there is nothing else to use
[GotToBTru]: but then .. if you have nothing to say, why not say nothing?
