Re: Help with ftp

In ftp: mget *
However, if you are running Linux on anything then I strongly suggest
that you get one of the mirror programs so that dates and symlink are
preserved.  mget * will copy symlinks by copying the files.  So, for
example the 6 meg+ kernel source packages will appear multiple times in
your destination directory tree!

         See!  They do get some things right!
