IO::All::FTP(3) Extends IO::All to FTP URLs


use IO::All;
"hello world\n" > io('ftp://localhost/test/x'); # save to FTP
io('ftp//') > io('xyz'); # GET to file
# two ways of getting a file with a password:
$content < io('ftp://me:[email protected]/xyz');
$content < io('')->user('me')->password('secret');


This module extends IO::All for dealing with FTP URLs. Note that you don't need to use it explicitly, as it is autoloaded by IO::All whenever it sees something that looks like an FTP URL.


This is a subclass of IO::All::LWP. The only new method is "ftp", which can be used to create a blank IO::All::FTP object; or it can also take an FTP URL as a parameter. Note that in most cases it is simpler just to call io('ftp//'), which calls the "ftp" method automatically.


The same operators from IO::All may be used. < GETs an FTP URL; > PUTs to an FTP URL.
