Net::FTP

Although the documentation for Net::FTP says that only a subset of RFC 959 is implemented, you will find that the implementation provided by Net::FTP is sufficiently robust for a wide variety of uses. The real power of Net::FTP stems from the power of the Perl programming language itself.

The Net::FTP module is contained in the libnetdistribution, bundled with Perl and available from your favorite CPAN mirror in the directory modules/by-module/Net. (I also recommend the libnet FAQ at http://www.pobox.com/~gbarr/libnet/.) The filename will be of the form libnet-X.YYYY.tar.gz.

There is also a virtually identical FTP capability in the Win32::Internet extension module, although Net::FTP works well in the Unix and Windows environments.
