 Hacking BSD, Part 2

"In this age of GUIs and feature-rich browsers, it's easy to forget how quick and efficient command-line ftp can be. That is, until you're logged into a system that doesn't have X installed, nor a browser, nor any fancy FTP programs. If it's really your lucky day, it won't even have any manpages. And, of course, you'll need to download something. Perhaps you find yourself using ftp all the time, always going to the same FTP servers and downloading from or uploading to the same directories. Clearly, it's time for some FTP automation."
