I'm having trouble using the examples and help given by LWP and its related modules. I need to write a script to upload or download files to an FTP server. This script will be called by the CRON daemon. I also need to pass the username and password to the FTP server (and the username has a "/" character in it - NT server)

use Net::FTP;

$cx = Net::FTP->new("server.address");
$cx->login("UserNameOnServer", "Password") || die "Unable to login to server";
$cx->cwd("destination_directory") || die "Unable to cd to destination_directory";
$cx->put("source_file_on_local")  || die "put failed";
$cx->cwd("source_directory") || die "Unable to cd to source_directory";
$cx->get("source_file_on_server") || die "get failed"
$cx->quit;

if the username has a '/' character in it, it really shouldn't cause a problem, but you can always escape it via :

"username_with_a_\/_in_it"
