I am trying to use FTP to download several hundred files within a directory. Is there a way to only download specific files with FTP?
Ideally, I would like to match specific files using a regular expression. Unfortunately, the directory is massive and it's too large to download the entire directory and then use find or grep locally to manipulate certain files. Is there a simply way to do what I am trying to do on Unix?
If not, I plan to just write a script in perl or python. Thanks in advance for the help.
