ftp client API's


I am running linux 2.6.11 in my pxa255 based embedded platform.

My application(C coding) needs to download file through FTP. FTP server runs in remote host.

Can you please suggest good documentation for this purpose or some manuals through which I can develop the application further.

You could always do a system call to wget to fetch your files, however if you want to really implement your own client side of ftp then I'd recommend looking at the ftp RFC 959.
