ncftp - A user-friendly and well-featured FTP client

This program allows a user to transfer files to and from a remote network site, and offers additional features that are not found in the standard interface, ftp. This version has Readline support enabled.

This is a complete re-write of version 2.4.3 (Debian package ncftp2).

Some users may prefer the full-screen ncurses interface of the "older" NcFTP 2.4.3; if you are one of them, install the ncftp2 package instead.

Amen to that. I've already forgotten there was any other way to deal with FTP.

More information on this package can be found on the Debian web site.
