in reply to Beginners guide to Net::FTP

Even though this is a beginner topic. It would be nice to see how to use the use Net::FTP::AutoReconnect;
function call.
 
The reason being is because in my project I have a 3.5 gig file to download daily. If FTP resets, I would like to know the looping structure for AutoReconnect and to restart where the FTP transfer stopped because of a connection issue.

[davido]: placed if there is no extension provided to the -i switch?
