Any Linux FTP Client as like FTPS on Windows ?


Well, I am very new to Linux and trying to learn the shell scripting. Just to know is there any client in linux which does the same task as FTPS on windows. FTPS on windows can read series of FTP command from a txt file and execute them.

Is there any way to do that same task, i mean reading series of ftp commands from a txt file, on linux suing shell or perl (any module)?

Thanks in advance.

there is an ftp command line tool, although I do not use it much.

Maybe this thread would help you:

Yes, you can use 'expect' to interact with commands, like FTP, telnet, etc. That would be used with a shell script to make it work. There are also many FTP modules for Perl which you can find on CPAN.

You can also use LFTP, CURL, ncftpget and ncftpput.
