On long ftp downloads, there appears to be no way to get 
any sort of "progress" indication.  (I prefer to use the 
ftp module rather than the ftp: wrapper for fgets for the 
application in question, so that I can more easily track 
success at connecting, success at logging in, checking of 
ftp directory contents, etc). 
This isn't much of an issue on a web-page, where ftp 
download shouldn't take long, but when used as a CLI 
application (as I am currently) to handle a long download,

If that includes checking on connection and login status, 
that'd be perfect (and I'd have no cause to use the ftp 
functions instead). 
In fact, if it includes the ability to fetch error 
messages that result, it would be even better....

Implemented in CVS.
Docs are due later.
Search the php-dev archives for my recent RFC on the
matter which includes a sample script if you can't wait
for the docs.
