in reply to hello who can help a newbie "me" with a perl file?...

We can help you with the Perl part, but the rest I think you're going to have to figure out yourself.

To run a task every 20 minutes you'll probably want to use cron; and you can use Perl's Net::Ftp module to connect to your ftp server, delete and upload files.

If this is coursework, perhaps there are notes or a text book that you can consult.

Good luck!
