slackware current ftp

could anyone tell me how to get all the slackware current directories from ftp in one go? that is, not having to copy every file? Like a recursive get on the slackware current directory? Thanks!

Use an ftp client, like wget:
wget -r -l 2

the -l parameter specifies the depth of links to follow - 2nd level subdirectories / files. You can use for specific directory download.
