I just looked at a GUI FTP client built as one of the examples in QT-4 on
snv_79a, amd64. I can't understand how anybody could find such a thing
more useful than just invoking the ftp client from a shell prompt and
typing get ....
Nor me, but then there are people that don't even know how to start a
command prompt, let alone any of the commands to type.
Another tool that does this well is ncftp, and in particular, ncftpput
and ncftpget, which can be used to automate puts/gets. IMO, rsync is
even better, though.
