There is much better tools for that.. I usually uses lynx or similar to
fetch various kinds of objects, but there is a couple of good batch FTP
fetchers available if you search a bit.. But ftpget should be quite
trivial to use stand alone (check the available options).

ftpget - server /pub/files/textfile A anonymous nobody@nowhere
ftpget - server /pub/files/binfile I anonymous nobody@nowhere
(ftpget only supports output to STDOUT nowdays)

As a side note: There is no ftpget in Squid 1.2. The FTP protocol is now
merged into the main process like the other protocols.
