More Info
lftp is a program that allows sophisticated ftp connection to other hosts. If host is specified then lftp will connect to that host otherwise a connection has to be established with the open command.

It uses GNU readline to read commands. It uses shell-like command syntax allowing you to launch several commands in parallel in the background (&).

When you think you are done but some background jobs are not yet finished, you can just exit and lftp will move itself to nohup mode in background, allowing you to use your shell or logout.

Check the manpage for futher information.
