ftp script mod

hi i am very much new on script.please do some modification on below script.


cd /usr/sap/GD0/put/AbhiData
f_date=`date --date="today" +%F | sed 's/-//g'`

ftp -n -v $f_host << FTP_EOF
user $f_user $f_passwd
get $f_name
modification which should be needed...on above script

1. AbhiData does not have updates after 8:00PM everyday. That is why script should run at 9:00 PM everyday and look for any delta file.
2. Download the new file from AbhiData to a temporary directory. The original file (which will be downloaded manually) is but subsequent files will have a date stamp (ex: abhidenialsapextended_delta20080123.xml). The script should send an email alert if something goes wrong with the download (ex: can’t connect to FTP server, space issues, etc). Notes:
o AbhiData does not prepare new files every day so there will be days when there is no new file. If there is no new file then the script should end here without sending an email alert.
o The original file will be loaded manually and does not need to be included in the script.
3. Copy the file from the temporary directory to the “in” directory renamed as “abhidenialsapextended.xml”. This should overwrite the existing “abhidenialsapextended.xml” file. There should always be a “abhidenialsapextended.xml” file in the in directory so the SAP batch job will not error out.
4. Move the file from the temporary directory to the “done” directory.
5. Weekly, a compare should be done between the files in the “done” directory and the files on the AbhiData server to make sure that no files are missing (files from AbhiData are “delta” loads – any missing files means our lists will be incomplete). An email alert would be sufficient – any missing files can be loaded manually.

Please do the needful.
