I'm looking to be able to ftp from a cgi using NET::FTP without actually writing a local file. Something like put($scalar, "remotelogfile"). I know you can do something similar using *STDIN, put have yet to get *STDOUT to work. Is there a way to write a CGI generated remote file without writing a local file?

use Net::FTP; $ftp = Net::FTP->new($host) or die $!; $ftp->login($user,$password) or die $!; $sock = $ftp->_data_cmd('stor', "remotelogfile") or die $!; while( <DATA> ){ $sock->write($_,length) or die $!; } $sock->close() or die $!;
