help: ftp client API


I'm an embedded programmer that was thrown from vxworks world into the linux world. I have the following problem. Our file system and applications for our platform (MIPS32) was cross compiled using Buildroot package. With this tool also additional tools like FTP client etc was cross compiled. I have working Linux platform. Here my problem starts. When I make my own application and I want to use FTP functionality from that application how do I do it? Here I have 2 separate executables (my app and ftp client). Is there any smart way of using FTP client from my application ?

A possibility would be to use popen to open a pipe to ftp and then using fputs to send commands to ftp over that pipe.
