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.
