lftp


Some material is very old and may be incorrect today

Freecode lftp

A very sophisticated ftp/http/sftp command line client. It's very like ncftp, but is Open Source. Its history function works like Bash (ncftp is a bit different). It has a "mirror" function and even a reverse mirror. If you use it with "http://", it lets you browse through a website looking at file names rather than content.

I used to be an ncftp fan, but this is my new favorite. Well, assuming I'm using ftp interactively, which is rare nowadays.

I was taught that the human brain was the crowning glory of evolution so far, but I think it’s a very poor scheme for survival (Kurt Vonnegut).
