The mput command is not implemented in Net::FTP, even though the documentation doesn't explicitly state the fact.

You can check $! for errors after a put, but from experience, this only relates to problems on the local host (e.g. "file not found"). To be absolutely certain that the file was tranferred to the remote host you could always do a dir and check the size of the remote file (modulo different sizes if transferring in ASCII between Unix and MS-DOS etc.).

You could gain a bit of clarity (and, possibly, encapsulate stuff) by using a loop:

for my $file ( $file1, $file2, $file ) { my $f = "$dir/$file"; $ftp->put( $f ) or warn "could not put $f: $!\n"; my $remote_size = get_remote_size( $f ); my $local_size = -s $f; if( $remote_size != $local_size ) { warn "$f not transferred correctly (local=$local_size, remote=$rem +ote_size)\n"; } }

... where the routine get_remote_size is left as an exercise to the reader. Hmmm... I should have read giant's post more carefully. The code presented there appears to do just that.

print@_{sort keys %_},$/if%_=split//,'= & *a?b:e\f/h^h!j+n,o@o;r$s-t%t#u'

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
