NAME

       ct_ftp - FTP client module (based on the FTP support of the INETS application).

DESCRIPTION

       FTP client module (based on the FTP support of the INETS application).

DATA TYPES

         connection() = handle() | target_name() (see module ct):

         handle() = handle() (see module ct_gen_conn):

           Handle for a specific ftp connection.

EXPORTS

       cd(Connection, Dir) -> ok | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Connection = connection()
                 Dir = string()

              Change directory on remote host.

       close(Connection) -> ok | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Connection = connection()

              Close the FTP connection.

       delete(Connection, File) -> ok | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Connection = connection()
                 File = string()

              Delete a file on remote host

       get(KeyOrName, RemoteFile, LocalFile) -> ok | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 KeyOrName = Key | Name
                 Key = atom()
                 Name = target_name() (see module ct)
                 RemoteFile = string()
                 LocalFile = string()

              Open a ftp connection and fetch a file from the remote host.

              RemoteFile and LocalFile must be absolute paths.

              The config file must be as for put/3.

              See also: put/3.

       ls(Connection, Dir) -> {ok, Listing} | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Connection = connection()
                 Dir = string()
                 Listing = string()

              List the directory Dir.

       open(KeyOrName) -> {ok, Handle} | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 KeyOrName = Key | Name
                 Key = atom()
                 Name = target_name() (see module ct)
                 Handle = handle()

              Open an FTP connection to the specified node.

              You  can  open  one  connection  for  a  particular  Name  and use the same name as
              reference for  all  subsequent  operations.  If  you  want  the  connection  to  be
              associated  with Handle instead (in case you need to open multiple connections to a
              host for example), simply use Key, the configuration variable name, to specify  the
              target.  Note  that  a  connection  that  has no associated target name can only be
              closed with the handle value.

       put(KeyOrName, LocalFile, RemoteFile) -> ok | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 KeyOrName = Key | Name
                 Key = atom()
                 Name = target_name() (see module ct)
                 LocalFile = string()
                 RemoteFile = string()

              Open a ftp connection and send a file to the remote host.

              LocalFile and RemoteFile must be absolute paths.

              If the target host is a "special" node, the ftp address must be  specified  in  the
              config file like this:

                 {node,[{ftp,IpAddr}]}.

              If  the  target host is something else, e.g. a unix host, the config file must also
              include the username and password (both strings):

                 {unix,[{ftp,IpAddr},
                        {username,Username},
                        {password,Password}]}.

       recv(Connection, RemoteFile) -> ok | {error, Reason}

              Fetch a file over FTP.

              The file will get the same name on the local host.

              See also: recv/3.

       recv(Connection, RemoteFile, LocalFile) -> ok | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Connection = connection()
                 RemoteFile = string()
                 LocalFile = string()

              Fetch a file over FTP.

              The file will be named LocalFile on the local host.

       send(Connection, LocalFile) -> ok | {error, Reason}

              Send a file over FTP.

              The file will get the same name on the remote host.

              See also: send/3.

       send(Connection, LocalFile, RemoteFile) -> ok | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Connection = connection()
                 LocalFile = string()
                 RemoteFile = string()

              Send a file over FTP.

              The file will be named RemoteFile on the remote host.

       type(Connection, Type) -> ok | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Connection = connection()
                 Type = ascii | binary

              Change file transfer type
