How do I implement an ftp pull?

I'm trying to integrate a non-standard (i.e. non-RSS) XML feed onto a web app deployed on Red Hat, written in Perl and Javascript. The publisher is making the feed available for an ftp pull to the local server - no URL feed, unfortunately. I've never done an ftp pull and I've never used linux. I'm so ashamed.

More specifically, do I code this in Perl? Will this take a 3rd party ftp app? Is there a Red Hat utility I can configure to pull a file from a remote server and copy it to a local directory?

Where do I start? (Please be gentle - I bruise easy.) And thanks in advance.

It is relatively simple matter in perl, and since the rest of the app is in perl, it probably makes sense to stick with that.

This should get you started:
