We have extensively used python to drive our sFTP scrips.

We have integrated pExpect in Python which gives you granular control of

Python is a super powerful addition to the IBM I with its ability to

command from within Python.

You can also skip the "engine" and just write a python script or even a
simple bash shell script that does this end-to-end.

Such scripts can be launched in PASE from within a CL suitable for job
