Renaming *.txt => *.get from within ftp, is it possible ?

I need to get *.txt from a certain directory using ftp. Since some of these files
may still be written to as I proceed, the safest bet would be to rename all of them
*.txt => *.get and then do mget  *.get and mdelete *.get ?

Thanks,
-Alex

if the application doing the writing understands to create a new file and the ftp server doesn't choke on open filed, sure.

u can use these commands.
RNFR
Syntax: RNFR from-filename

Used when renaming a file. Use this command to specify the file to be renamed; follow it with an RNTO command to specify the new name for the file.

if u are doing this unix to unix then it is simple. mv command(which does the renameing works).
