[REBOL] FTP and Absolute Directories

From: cribbsj::oakwood::org at: 17-Oct-2000 15:01

Some time ago I posted a question asking how I could ftp to a server and go to a directory that was not below my home directory. For example, I would like to ftp to another server here at work, and get a file located in /var/local/datamover/test1/. The problem is that Rebol seems to only let you specify relative directory paths below where you ftp in. So, if I use the ftp command and specify my user id and password, it will only let me reference a directory below my home directory. Perl, using the Net::FTP object lets me ftp using an absolute path. I'm hoping someone out there has an idea how I can do this in Rebol. I would really like to write this application in Rebol instead of Perl. Thanks in advance for the help! -- Jamey Cribbs
