RE: Uploading multiple files

Is that a good idea to open a connection to the FTP server for each file?
Isn't it going to create a problem when working with hundreds of files?

You don't have to, you let the computer do it for you. This is why the
FOR command
ws created.

Go to a dos prompt, and type HELP FOR to see all the options you can
use with the FOR command.

Here's a simple example of a batch file that will upload all files in a
folder with the extention .dat to an FTP server.

CD C:\data
for %%f in (*.dat) do @curl -T %%f ftp://your.ftp.server/%%f
