Cool .sh/.bat ftp script

Hi all.

After searching on Google and trying a couple of ideas ... i'm lost. Here we go:

1) There're two machines: one is Unix and the other one is Windows.

2) On Windows machine there're a couple of csv files (inside a folder called 'A') that should be transferred to Unix (to a 'B' folder) through ftp. I can use an .sh script (to 'get' files) or a .bat file (to 'put' files). The script will be executed every 10 minutes, every day. I can't use FlashFXP or other GUI client, only 'shell' scripting.

3) The tricky part is that for each file transferred i should move it to another folder: for each file transfered from 'A' Windows folder to 'B' Unix folder i should move it to 'C' Windows folder (a subdirectory inside 'A' Windows folder). This is to avoid the same file transfer on future script runs.

4) I know how to make a simple .bat ftp script that will upload one file to another host, but i'm really lost at how can i control that one file is transferred and once is transfered, move it to another folder.


Any ideas?.

Thanks in advance for your time.

this is fairly easy to do on the unix end, either with a shell script or python client. you might take a peek at the python ftp library, it might provide everything you need to whip up a simple script.

After a couple of tries i have a little .bat script that works :

Code:
@echo off
cd /D D:
if exist *.csv (goto si) else exit
:si
move /Y *.csv D:\Externos_Temp
cd /D D:\Externos_Temp
ftp -i -s:D:\script.txt
move /Y *.csv D:\Externos_Final
Being script.txt

Code:
open www.some_host.org 2100
some_username
some_password
ascii
mput *.csv
bye

You should use:
cd /D D:\
just to make sure you end up in the root directory of the D drive.
(launching the .bat from a subdir of D:\ will not work correctly...)
