To answer part of your question, the FTP client will accept
an override for input and output.  You do this with an OVRDBF

So, create a file (I create a source physical file so I can edit the
members using PDM).  Add your FTP commands in there, and
use that for input (I call mine FTPINPUT):
   username password
   get /somedirectory/CHEMCD.TXT somelibrary/chemf.somemember

Also, create another file for output from the FTP server, and just give
it a blank member (I call mine FTPOUTPUT).

Then run:

FTP will then read from your input file and do everthing it says.  It will
put responses to your output file.
