which error?

> $user = 'first.last@somewhere.com';

that's fine. You most likely did use double quotes instead

$user = "first.last@somewhere.com";

which will try to interpolate the array @somewhere.

But this is just a guess since you didn't give us details

    If I use single quotes, I get the error "Can't call method "login" on an undefined value at line x." Here's the relevant portion of the code:
    use Net::FTP; my ($ftp, $host, $user, $pass, $dir, $fpath); $host = 'ftp.my.com'; $user = 'last.first@somewhere.com'; $pass = 'mypass'; $dir = '/my/file_path/onftp'; $fpath = 'myfileonserver_xml.zip'; $ftp = Net::FTP->new($host, Debug => 0); $ftp->login($user, $pass) || die $ftp->message; ##this is line x## $ftp->cwd($dir); $ftp->put($fpath) || die $ftp->message; $ftp->quit;
      From the Net::FTP docs:
      $ftp = Net::FTP->new("some.host.name", Debug => 0) or die "Cannot connect to some.host.name: $@";
      Check for errors as shown in the docs. What does that say?

      You are missing a semi-colon from the end of this line.

      use Net::FTP
      poj

        Yes it was in my code correct with the ";". It was just a typo on my post.

      You are getting the error on your first use of the $ftp object.

      That means the construction of it in the line above failed, where you specified $ftp = Net::FTP->new($host, Debug => 0);

      I can't see from here why it failed, you will have to debug if you can reach $host using some other method to ftp for instance.
