Google is your friend. I found the following by Googling "z/os ftp api".

Go to the IBM web site, find the Communications Server bookshelf, and read chapter 13 of the IP Programmer's Guide and Reference manual. This chapter is called FTP Client Application Programming Interface (API) and contains a section on COBOL, C, REXX, Assembler, and PL/I call formats.

Possibly, but not so likely. . . With a few thousand different transmissions already implemented, none of the places i've supported has yet needed to invoke FTP from a program.

Suggest you create the file to be transmitted and then executa FTP separately.

Unless there is something extroardinary about the file, the EBCDIC/ASCII conversion is automatic . . .
