First post! I am slowly learning Applescript (as it is useful for my job).
There is an ftp server that has files on it formatted like so: ProgramName_1.2.3_12_2_12.extension
basically name, version, date uploaded.
I need to download files from the server to a specific folder, and remove the old versions of the same program name.
I only want to do this for files that have newer versions (files get as large as 14gb so I really don’t want to re-download things)
I found a nice script on downloading files from ftp here: http://macscripter.net/viewtopic.php?id=36602 so what I really need help with is the filename comparing, the removing the old versions, and only downloading files that I don’t already have downloaded.
Thanks in advance for any help!
