Q

COBOL and FTP

We frequently use FTP on the mainframe. I have to output the FTP log into a file and then read it into a COBOL program. I need a good COBOL example that has FTP in the code. Is this possible within COBOL?

Yes, you can do almost anything in COBOL! Of course, this is more of an FTP question than a COBOL question, but I did find an example of COBOL calling FTP on the Web (thanks to Jim Keohane).
