So you'll have to lash one up:

(untested)

Firstly,
alist = []
ftpobj.retrline s('list', alist.append)
should get you a list of filenames.

Secondly,

for fname in alist:
f = open(fname, "wb")
ftpobj.retrbina ry('RETR ' + fname, f.write)
f.close()

should do the business. Instead of using f.write as the callback, you
might like to wrap that in a function that counts the bytes received,
displays progress, etc.

John

If your Python distrbution contains a "Tools" directory you should look
for the "ftpmirror. py" utility in it. If you don't have Tools then you
can extract them from the Python source tarball.
