in reply to Net:ftp directory
in thread net::ftp please

The "Net" before the colons indicates that the module is in the Net directory. If the module you want, say "" is in the "Slurpy" directory, then you allow yourself to use it with
use Slurpy::Bubba;
If Bubba is in a Perl "main" directory, then it finds it when you write "use Bubba". If you insist that there is no "Net::FTP" module that you can use, I would 1) throw my hand in the air and "use FTP;" and 2) consider switching servers to someplace that knows something more about Perl dependencies.

[erix]: hippo I think the 26 downvotes sick
[erix]: eh, 29 downvotes
[erix]: but I guess there's no stopping the herd
[1nickt]: Thank you haukex and hippo. I'm thinking of using IPC::System:: Simple::capture instead. But will go reread Hauke's treatise first :-)
[1nickt]: herveus is so weird. Love his reply in that SQLite thread! Much more effective warning system to have diverse monks debunk on technical merits...
[haukex]: IPC::System:: Simple does all the $? handling for you, and does it well
[erix]: weird problem btw (that SQLite question) - I asked astroboy to let us know if he finds the cause
[hippo]: The syntax is warning enough to me.
