ftp problem with naming

Hi guys,

Do you know what is the best way to do this:

I want to ftp "filename" from a location to my pc but I want to rename the filename as filename01, filename02 so on so that it will not overwrite the previous file.

regards
Henry

Re: ftp problem with naming

your ftp may implement the "runique" option.
If you receive multiple copies of a.txt then it will call them a.txt.1 a.txt.2 etc.
up to a.txt.99

Re: ftp problem with naming

The standard ms one doesn't implement all ftp options, there a number of gui versions (eg. filezilla) or command line versions (ftp://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/emacs/windows/contrib/ftp-for-win32.zip) that are freely available.
