I have a set of programs in different directories that I work on all the time and I upload them to a server all the time. So I have to move from folder to folder uploading the programs in that directory.

I would like to define the set somewhere and be able to transfer just those programs (not the whole system) at one time. Can I do it in filezilla? Is there another ftp program that will allow that?

If you are on Windows, you may want to consider just setting up a batch file that does it (or a shell script on Unix/Linux)

The command line ftp command is more powerful than most realize.

Of particular note is the following switch from the Windows command line ftp:

  -s:filename     Specifies a text file containing FTP commands; the
                  commands will automatically run after FTP starts.

I don't think Filezilla lets you do this, though.

Thanks, I didn't think so. I was hoping though/ –  David Mar 27 '11 at 5:04
