lftp


© December 2004 Tony Lawrence

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 "https://", 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.

Anyone who slaps a 'this page is best viewed with Browser X' label on a Web page appears to be yearning for the bad old days, before the Web, when you had very little chance of reading a document written on another computer, another word processor, or another network. (Tim Berners-Lee)
