I am not very good at handling references.

when I am using the dir command it returns a reference to a list. How do I actually print that list & / or loop through the list ?

you should be able to do either of the following

@files = $FTP->dir();
foreach $File ($FTP->dir()) {};
print $FTP->dir();

Why not just

for ($ftp->ls) {print "$_\n"}

#or if you already got it as a ref
$ref = $ftp->dir;
for( @{$ref} ){ print "$_\n"}
