If I understand well, what you want is explained in the documentation. Here it is an extract from Net::FTP docs:
CONSTRUCTOR new (HOST [,OPTIONS]) This is the constructor for a new Net::FTP object. "HOST" is the name of the remote host to which a FTP connection is required. "OPTIONS" are passed in a hash like fashion, using key and value pairs. Possible options are: Firewall - The name of a machine which acts as a FTP ... Port - The port number to connect to on the remote machine for the FTP connection Timeout - Set a timeout value (defaults to 120) Debug - debug level (see the debug method in the Net::Cmd manpage) ...
Timeout here is the key option, so you can say:
my $ftp = Net::FTP->new( $myhost, Timeout => 10, Debug => 1 ); ... $ftp->get($myfile) or warn("Can't get file $myfile"); $ftp->quit();
Hope this helps.

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