I am trying to get a recent file from ftp site that starts with imma.

I tried the following script and it doesn't work. Please help.

#!/bin/ksh
ftp $FTP_SITE_NAME
get ls -tr imma*|tail -1
bye


I tried to export TEMP_VAR="ls -tr imma*|tail -1"
and tried the follwoing and it didn't work either.
#!/bin/ksh
ftp $FTP_SITE_NAME
get ${TEMP_VAR}
bye


Thanks.
