Have anyone got a pointer to a program which will perform FTP
under script control (eg from a cron job)?
I need to retrieve files on a timed basis, and it's all been done on a
VAX so far, where a .com file can easily pass subcommands to FTP. But
regular Unix FTP only accepts command input from the tty: you can't
redirect it to come from stdin.
I've tried the W3C commandline retriever (flaky); I've tried Lynx
(uncontrollable); and dog only does HTTP not FTP. Ideas?
