Command line ftp tools for listing and mirroring

Two command line ftp tools.

ftpcopy is a simple FTP client written to copy files or directories recursively from a FTP server. It’s main purpose is to mirror FTP sites which support the MLSD/MLST commands or which employ the EPLF directory listing format, although it also supports the traditional listing format /bin/ls.

ftpls is a FTP client which generates directory listings, either in plain text or HTML format.

The tools only support passive mode FTP, intentionally.
