( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Although LWP::* can do FTP as I found out. And that is probably the recommended way to go. I had already basically finished this by the time I figured that out
So I'm going to post it here, for comments, or whatever.

Default mode is to download in Binary, you can specify Ascii like this:
my($file) = get("ftp://user:password@ftp.somewhere.com/pub/somefile.txt;type=a");

Here is Simple.pm:

package Net::FTP::Simple; require Exporter; use strict; use vars qw(@ISA @EXPORT @EXPORT_OK $VERSION); @ISA = qw(Exporter); @EXPORT = qw(); @EXPORT_OK = qw(get); $VERSION = '0.01'; use URI; use Net::FTP::Scalar; $Net::FTP::Scalar::SCALAR_MODE = 1; sub get { my($url) = shift(); my($uri) = URI->new($url); my($user) = $uri->user(); my($pass) = $uri->password(); my($host) = $uri->host(); my($port) = $uri->port(); my($ftp) = Net::FTP::Scalar->new($host, Debug => 0) || warn("new() + '$host' failed: $@") && return(); $ftp->login($user, $pass) || warn("login() '$user' failed: $@") && + return(); my(@path) = grep { length() } $uri->path_segments(); my($file) = pop(@path); my($type); if (ref($file)) { my(@params); ($file, @params) = @$file; foreach (@params) { $type = $_ if (s/^type=//); } } if (defined($type) && $type eq 'a') { $ftp->ascii(); } else { $ftp->binary(); } foreach (@path) { $ftp->cwd($_) || warn("cwd() '$_' failed: $@") && return(); } unless ($ftp->get($file)) { $ftp->quit(); warn("get() '$file' failed: $@"); return(); } return($Net::FTP::Scalar::OUT_FILE); } return(1);

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.
