cmdftp: About as simple as it gets

When a program’s home page insists the intent is to be simple and small, it’s usually a good sign.


That’s cmdftp, and like a lot of ftp clients I’ve seen for the console, it behaves like a shell.

If you need some sort of visual arrangement you might be better sticking with something like Midnight Commander. I usually do.

But for sheer svelte-ness, it’s going to be hard to find an FTP client with as much function that takes up as little space. cmdftp weighs in at a mind-blowing 60Kb. That’s right, 60. Kilobytes.

So, no color, no graphical arrangement. On the other hand, fully functional, speedy and smaller than a grain of sand.

Should be an easy decision. 😉
