[Chicago-talk] Net::FTP

is there a way to pull a unique filename from the Net::FTP package?

something like $ftp->unique_name(); unfortunately this works on the server
side not the client side or do I have to do something like below?

my @local_files=glob("*"); ## assume you are in the proper directory
if (grep $ftp_file eq $_, @local_files) {
} else {

I've had good success w/ Net::FTP. It's a nice package, and Graham Barr's
packages on CPAN are like gold.
