in thread ftp files from Unix m/c

I think what the person is asking is how to do a listing, but ignore all of the directory entries in the directory he is reading from.

Frankly, I don't think this could be done with Net::FTP->ls(), AFAIK, because it doesn't give you any bits to determine between dirs and files, and you certainly can't do a grep ! -d  $_, readdir REMOTE_DIR with the FTP module.

Perhaps the easiest way would be to use the Net::FTP->dir command. This will give you an ls -l UNIX long directory list with file permissions and stuff. Then you can probably do a  grep ! /^d/, Net::FTP->dir() instead. Of course, then you have to extract the filename from each line from amidst the other info, but that's not hard.
