Hello all.
I've written FTP commands for use with the NCS library.  Which allow you to send and receive files via an FTP server using two easy commands:

FTPGetFile("data1/",GetStartPath + "","",21,"","GlueStick",TRUE)
FTPPutFile("data1/",GetStartPath + "","",21,"","GlueStick",TRUE)

The source for the commands can be had for a donation of $20, and you can incorporate them into your own programs with no restrictions.  The commands include a verbose mode so you can see all of the communications between the client and FTP server.  Supports both anonymous and password protected FTP servers.

If there is enough interest I may expand on them to create a full set of ftp commands as an add-on.

If it were sftp I would be interested.

Like I said, if there is enough interest I may consider expanding on them.  I know how to do sftp, but didn't have a reason to do it for the project these commands were written for.

i too would be very interested to get a complete set of commands expanding the network library,
but only if the command set is complete, i mean ftp, sftp, ftps, and all commands linked, as all commands
to change dir on ftp, to delete on ftp, to rename on ftp, to go one dir up, . . .
Anything one can do on local dir would be done on ftp dir .

What I meant is if enough people click on the $20 link, and get the FTP source, then I would likely expand on them.  It is a waste of my time otherwise as there isn't a lot of call for it.

Just bought the code via the link.

Sure do hope this grows ... I do a LOT of ftp work and am, in fact, working on a C# ftp script engine for work right now (C# was mandated, no option for EB  :-[ )
