Writing FTP client

I want to write an ftp client. I have a fair idea of sockets and C. Can anyone help me getting some specification of the FTP server or some URL where I can find the relavent information.
Any help would be appreciated.

as akshayxx suggested, don't implement your own
ftp client protocol. There are already enough (broken :-)
implementations.

use something like libcurl
http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/

My recommendation, which I will post in the Cleanup topic area, is to
accept answer by akshayxx.
