Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am trying this out, and it's looking like it could work fine.. but I am struggling to actually get it going. It's moaning;
usage: gpg [options] --encrypt [filename]
local: *170614*.csv.pgp: No such file or directory
-eFTP TRANSFER FAILED. \n\n *170614*.csv.pgp failed to upload to server
for i in "*$(date +%d%m%y)*.csv"; do
gpg -r firstname.lastname@example.org -e "$i" -o "$i.pgp";
ftp -inv $HOST <<! > $FTPLOG
user $USER xxxx
if fgrep "226 Transfer Complete" $FTPLOG; then
echo -e "FTP TRANSFER SUCCESS. \n\n $i.pgp has uploaded to server"
echo -e"FTP TRANSFER FAILED. \n\n $i.pgp failed to upload to server"
In fact that's what I ended up doing... omitting the quotes all together, which worked fine. I've now stumbled across another issue relating to the same script which I've started a new thread for, to make searching easier for others
