( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am working on a script that goes out to a host and grabs the .lic files for Veritas so we can keep a record of the keys. Any suggestions on how to make this smoother? Seems it should be simpler than this?
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use Net::FTP; $LIC_DIR = "/home/user/admin/keys"; @files = grep(/\.lic$/, readdir(LDIR)); $ftp = Net::FTP->new("ip address") or die "can't + connect: $@\n"; $ftp->login("user", "password") or die "could +n't login\n"; $ftp->cwd("/etc/vx/elm") or die "could +n't change directory\n"; $ftp->binary(); $ftp->quot("prompt"); foreach $x ( @files ) { $x =~ s/.lic/; print "Getting file $x\n"; $ftp->get($x) or die "could +n't get $x: $@\n"; } $ftp->quit; # outta here

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
