Yes but mput will only operate on files within a single directory.
There seems to be no ftp command that acts recursively. ie. these 362
files are not in one directory, but located in maybe 50 nested
If I was to try and use mput I still have to go through the laborious
process of chdiring to subdirectory X locally, creating subdirectory X on
host, mputting all files in X. Chances of doing this correctly with
50 nested dirs without forgetting to do one dir (or dying of boredom
in the process) are near zero.
