Connecting to FTP with DOS batch program

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?
Windows 2000 comes with a command line FTP program. The "-s" command line option allows you to pass in the list of command you want to execute. That will allow you to do exactly what you want. See the FTP command line options in the Windows 2000 help for more information.
