There is an FTP client product from Trailblazer Systems
( that allows you to write FTP scripts using CL
commands instead of text FTP commands. You write an FTP script just like a
CL program, using FTP commands the product provides to PUT/GET files/lists
etc that you can use MONMSG/GOTO's and any other AS/400 command right in
the middle of the FTP session. So you can finally get boolean logic in an
FTP script!!
(The disclosure is...I work for them.)
