in thread email address as username

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 = ''; $user = ''; $pass = 'mypass'; $dir = '/my/file_path/onftp'; $fpath = ''; $ftp = Net::FTP->new($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("", Debug => 0) or die "Cannot connect to $@";
    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

      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.
