NAME

Net::FTP::dataconn - FTP Client data connection class  

DESCRIPTION

Some of the methods defined in "Net::FTP" return an object which will be derived from this class. The dataconn class itself is derived from the "IO::Socket::INET" class, so any normal IO operations can be performed. However the following methods are defined in the dataconn class and IO should be performed using these.
read ( BUFFER, SIZE [, TIMEOUT ] )
Read "SIZE" bytes of data from the server and place it into "BUFFER", also performing any <CRLF> translation necessary. "TIMEOUT" is optional, if not given, the timeout value from the command connection will be used.

Returns the number of bytes read before any <CRLF> translation.

write ( BUFFER, SIZE [, TIMEOUT ] )
Write "SIZE" bytes of data from "BUFFER" to the server, also performing any <CRLF> translation necessary. "TIMEOUT" is optional, if not given, the timeout value from the command connection will be used.

Returns the number of bytes written before any <CRLF> translation.

bytes_read ()
Returns the number of bytes read so far.
abort ()
Abort the current data transfer.
close ()
Close the data connection and get a response from the FTP server. Returns true if the connection was closed successfully and the first digit of the response from the server was a '2'.
