[Chicago-talk] Net::FTP

I am currently using ncftpput and ncftpget. been using it for about a 1 or
1.5 years.

it works great. but the only thing is I have a bunch of shell scripting that
goes on in conjunction w/ the ncftp.

wanted to see if there was a better way to do it with perl.

in the end my vision is to:
1) have a web page of the ftp logs (only displaying the file sent and the
time (possably the file size)
2) the user can access a log of what files were sent to x client on z day
3) they would click on the name of the file and the file would load up in
there browser so they can view it

I'd recommend before you do anything else you look at scripting your ftp
app directly, or using something ncftpget (part of ncftp) or wget.
