I am looking for an FTP Library for C++ to do basic ftp functions like authenticate, change directory, upload files, etc. but I can't seem to find one. I've searched over Google, Sourceforge, and CodeProject (well, there's one complete FTP CLIENT project for Win95 in CodeProject, however I don't need the entire ftp client..), but I only found C# FTP libraries.
Could you guys please suggest me a good one? or maybe an alternative?
fyi: Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition is my only IDE, and I prefer precompiled static library (*.lib) that can be statically linked (if any)
Just to inform those who are looking for a good C++ FTP Library/Class, I've found a very good and easy to use one. Using it is just as easy as using C# FTP library that has been made by many peoples already. If you haven't tried one, here's an example code:
nsFTP::CFTPClient ftpClient; nsFTP::CLogonInfo logonInfo("localhost", 21, "anonymous", "firstname.lastname@example.org"); // connect to server ftpClient.Login(logonInfo); // get directory listing nsFTP::TSpFTPFileStatusVector list; ftpClient.List("/", list); // iterate listing for( nsFTP::TSpFTPFileStatusVector::iterator it=list.begin(); it!=list.end(); ++it ) TRACE("\n%s", (*it)->Name().c_str()); // do file operations ftpClient.DownloadFile("/pub/test.txt", "c:\\temp\\test.txt"); ftpClient.UploadFile("c:\\temp\\test.txt", "/upload/test.txt"); ftpClient.RenameFile("/upload/test.txt", "/upload/NewName.txt"); ftpClient.Delete("/upload/NewName.txt"); // disconnect ftpClient.Logout();
And it is totally programmed in C++ with STL (no MFC)
I am sorry for switching the answer to this post, because I think this is a better solution, rather than using the ones that written in C.
Finding a C++ implementation might be difficult, but wrapping a C library in C++ classes wouldn't be difficult if you really need a C++ interface.
Edit: Just saw that you prefer a pre-compiled library. If this is an absolute requirement you'll probably have to use a C library as ABI issues will more than likely mean that a pre-compiled C++ library won't work for you.
