While ftp clients often have some rudimentary globbing
capablility built-in, they do not usually support the shell's
command or parameter substitution. If you're working in an
interactive ftp session then just type in the date instead of
the command. If your scripting this put, preprocess the script
each time before feeding it to ftp.
