I haven't tried this, but here's part of the manpage for ncftpput:

       The purpose of ncftpput is to do file transfers from  the command-line
       without  entering  an  interactive  shell.   This  lets you write shell
       scripts or other unattended processes that can do FTP.  It is also use-
       ful  for  advanced  users who want to send files from the shell command
       line without entering an interactive FTP program such as ncftp.
