Automatically connect to FTP and upload files

I want to write a simple DOS program (.bat) to connect to FTP and automatically upload files. Can I connect to FTP using a batch program and, if so, how do I do it? Also, I want to pass the name of the file while running the batch program.
As you didn't indicate which operating system you are using, I'll assume you're using an NT-based system (Windows NT4/2000/XP/.NET). The FTP.EXE command line program will do everything you want. In fact, the -s option allows you to pass in a text file of commands to execute, so you don't even have to go to the trouble of writing a batch file.
