Hi Folks,

I am looking for a Perl script. And Here are my requirements:

- Download files from the FTP server on the local machine and create these all files entries under an empty database.

- Now next time when script will run it should download only the added and
modified files from the FTP server.

- If filename is not present into DB table, its a new file and download that
file. And update DB table for this file.

case 2:
- If filename's timestamp doesn't match, its a modified file and download
that file. And update DB table for this file.

Note: These files comparison would be from the FTP and Database. and as any new or modified files would be found just copy it under the local machine.

I am really appreciating for this help.

It does not work like this here.

Here is what is expected of enquirers:
1. TRY first what you want to do! You may find that it's not that hard.
2. Formulate what was done by you that looks like an issue/not working.

Try them and tell if you face issues.

update the current one with your effort. Once done, do tell me and I will remove my comments from here.
