Pull compressed file (.gz format) via FTP and place on Application server




We have a requirement where a compressed file in the format *.gz is to be pulled via FTP and saved to the application server after extracting.

I searched the forums and found options to pull text or XL files, but nothing about pulling a compressed file. I wished to know if there is any process for the same. After pulling the file, it is to be saved to Application server after extracting. My doubts are as below:

1. How to pull a *.gz file via FTP (Need batch processing)

2. Can I extract and rename th file before saving it to applciation server? Or I need a temporary location to place the file before extraction?

Any inputs are appreciated.
