Answer: How do I FTP a file from my program?
contributed by vroom

You need to get Net::FTP from CPAN.

use NET::FTP; my $hostname=''; my $user='warez'; my $password='warez'; my $ftp=Net::FTP -> new($hostname) or die ("Connect failed"); $ftp->login($username,$password); $ftp->binary; $ftp->cwd("/pub/uploads"); $ftp->put("mystuff.txt"); $ftp->get("warezlist.txt"); $ftp->quit
