Using variable in storbinary function of ftpilb module

Hi,

I am new to python.

I have written a simple code to upload a file via ftp to remote server

-------------
import sys
import ftplib
host=sys.argv[1]
username=sys.ar gv[2]
passwd=sys.argv[3]
filename=sys.ar gv[4]

print host,username,p asswd

ftp = ftplib.FTP(host ,username,passw d)
fd=open(filenam e,'rb')
ftp.storbinary( 'STOR filename',fd)
-------------------

I am passing file name in cmd line arg. but I have no idea how to use "filename" variable value in ftp.storbinary( 'STOR filename',fd) ?

Still new to vb.net in VS2005 web developer... What is the proper/standard way of doing the following - setting the value of a variable in one sub and calling it from another? E.g., as below. The code below draws an error as indicated. Surely there has to be a better way than to make xxx a session variable? Thanks

Hi Luis, A static variable IS encapsulation. Encapsulation happens at many levels: module, class, instance, and (in languages that support it) method. A static local variable is simply the finest level of encapsulation. (Well, actually you could go one finer in some languages and have block-level static scope.)
