Is there a way of issuing the equivalent of an mget (get multiple files sending a skeleton) using smartftp ?

Hello ...

Are you referring to the SmartFTP FTP Library? Then the answer is no. The FTP library offers a raw level FTP function layer (get size of remote file, get hash value of remote file, setup data connection, transfer data over data connection, etc). A single file transfer usually consists of pre-transfer operations (size, xcrc), the transfer itself and post-transfer operations (xcrc, mdtm). The behavior of these operations depend on user settings (e.g. file exist settings, file integrity settings, keep file time, etc). A multi file transfer depends on even more user settings (file skip, file auto rename, etc). This is logic which needs to be implemented by a user of the FTP Library.

We are currently working on a layer which offers such functionality. But keeping it simple and flexible is a challenge.
