  +<h3>Sending Files</h3>
  +<p>The easiest way to describe how to send files is with a couple of examples:</p>
  +  &lt;ftp server=&quot;;
  -       password=&quot;;
  -  &gt;
  +       password=&quot;;&gt;
       &lt;fileset dir=&quot;htdocs/manual&quot; /&gt;

   HTML files in the <code>htdocs/manual</code> directory to the 
   <code>c:\uploads</code> directory.  Progress messages are displayed as each
   file is uploaded.</p>
  +<h3>Getting Files</h3>
  +<p>Getting files from an FTP server works pretty much the same way as 
  +sending them does.  The only difference is that the nested filesets
  +use the remotedir attribute as the base directory for the files on the
  +FTP server, and the dir attribute as the local directory to put the files
  +into.  The file structure from the FTP site is preserved on the local machine.</p>
  +  &lt;ftp action="get"
  +       server=&quot;;
  +       userid=&quot;anonymous&quot;
  +       password=&quot;;&gt;
  +    &lt;fileset dir=&quot;htdocs/manual&quot; &gt;

  +<p>Logs in to <code></code> as <code>anonymous</code>
  +recursively downloads all .html files from default directory for that user 
  +into the <code>htdocs/manual</code> directory on the local machine.</p>
  +<h3>Deleting Files</h3>
  +As you've probably guessed by now, you use nested fileset elements to 
  +select the files to delete from the remote FTP server.  Again, the 
  +filesets are relative to the remote directory, not a local directory.  In
  +fact, the dir attribute of the fileset is ignored completely.
  +  &lt;ftp action="del"
  +       server=&quot;;
  +       userid=&quot;anonymous&quot;
  +       password=&quot;; &gt;
  +    &lt;fileset&gt;
  +      &lt;include name=&quot;**/*.tmp&quot; /&gt;
  +    &lt;/fileset&gt;
  +  &lt;/ftp&gt;
  +<p>Logs in to <code></code> as <code>anonymous</code>
  +tries to delete all *.tmp files from the default directory for that user.
  +If you don't have permission to delete a file, a BuildException is thrown.</p>
  +<h3>Listing Files</h3>
  +  &lt;ftp action="list"
  +       server=&quot;;
  +       userid=quot;anonymous&quot;
  +       password=&quot;; 
  +       listing=&quot;data/ftp.listing&quot; &gt;
  +    &lt;fileset&gt;
  +      &lt;include name=&quot;**&quot; /&gt;
  +    &lt;/fileset&gt;
  +  &lt;/ftp&gt;
  +<p>This provides a file listing in <code>data/ftp.listing</code> of all
the files on
  +the FTP server relative to the default directory of the <code>anonymous</code>
  +user.  The listing is in whatever format the FTP server normally lists files.</p>
