I can modify an FTP client script that will retrieve the file for you...assuming the file can be retrieved via FTP.

Your idea sounds great..trouble is i dont have FTP access for where the file has to come 'from'

its a http link
so i have to get the file from this http url then store it on my FTP...
its a mirror see...to be updated every 2 to 3 days (1 file 500k)

If you can install a binary on your server, you can try 'wget'. it is a command line tool to retrieve files from URL via http, then just execute it in a cgi script.
