I recently upgraded a Future Basic program which polls several 
industrial chart recorders, so that it posts the values to the web,

was to use an AppleScript to periodically run the Fetch 3.03 
application to ftp an HTML file to a web server.  So I have to run 
three programs simultaneously for this to work (FB, Fetch, and the 

Is there a way to do FTP directly in FB?  Also, can FB call (run) a 
compiled AppleScript directly?  Finally, what is the best way to FTP 
through Future Basic?

Thanks much in advance,
