map question...by k2 (Scribe)
|on Jun 16, 2003 at 20:49 UTC||Need Help??|
k2 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm trying to use the module Net::FTP::Recursive to get an entire catalog-structure from an FTP-server.
I used the rget-script that came along with the module and it works fine, when I connect to a Unix/Linux FTP...
BUT (there's allways a but) it does NOT work when I connect to a Novell FTP-server.
So I had a look at the script and came across this line:
(se below for the entire script)
The problem is that I can't figure out what the digit 1 does...
I think/hope/guess that the 1 refers to the digit 1 that shows that it's is a
file and not a directory when I do a dir on the Unix/Linux FTP-server.
If so I know that the Novell FTP-server has a "-" to indicate that it's a file and not a directory,
but I can't seem to get the script to work if I change the "1" to a "-".
I havde read the Map: The Basicsand the Complex Sorting
but neither of them has made me see the light ;-)
They talk about BLOCK's but ($_, 1) has me somewhat confused...
So now I hope that someone in the Monastary has the time to shed some light on my problem...
