Many people suggested using other packages such as perl, python or using
exec to run ftp from the command line. But what I really wanted to do was
to create a complete binary with ftp capabilities 'sealed in!'. There were
three library packages available. The first and the best documented was
ncftplib, but you will have to pay after 30 days and if you required the
source code.

Another is libftp, again provides library ftp functions, but I thought the
documentation was not very good.

and finally ftplib.

I hope this helps.

it all? And if it hasn't got a point, what's the point of that?'
