File Transmission through FTP to Destination
We used to send files in the form of .jpg, .tif, and/or .pdf. Normally the file name will be in the form of 08072011IE01CTYHUB.PDF (DDMMYYYY - is the date, IE - publication, 01 - page number, CTY - edition name and HUB - destination in three characters). These files will be stored in a common folder (say SOURCE). I need a script to move these files to destination by reading the destination from the file name through FTP. At destination these files should be moved to a folder meant for CTY. Please note before the file is sent through FTP it should be compressed (zipped)

At SOURCE folder the files will be as:
etc. where first 8 characters are date in the form of DDMMYYYY, next 2 characters are publication, last 3 characters are destination, previous 3 characters are edition and left over in the middle are page number in the form of NN or name.

Presently I am zipping these files and send it through FTP to the destination. At destination my counterpart takes the file, stores in appropriate location (like folder name CTY) for use.

To automate the above process, I want a script.

Will you please suggest?

Thanks in advance.

Have a look at lftp; it's a ftp client with scripting options
