Does Froogle yet have a system in place by which I can point it at a particular file on my server and say download once a day? (domain.com/feeds/froogle.txt)

My server generates a new file once a day from the database and uploading the file each morning is getting to be a little old. It would be nice to automate this task. Any Suggestions?

I thought that was odd also. As far as I can make out you *have* to upload your file manually. In my business that's not so easy 'cause prices can be fairly dynamic so I'd really love to have an auto-upload via url.

I implemented an easy solution (actually fairly complicated but it works)

I setup a cron ftp job on our server which connects to the froogle ftp and sends the file. Its not pretty but it works.

A simple url field on froogle however would be much easier, I agree!
