No. You hit it. you can do; insert port 'help print copy port and see what's supported. I think it's not overly complex to use something like port: open iftp://.... insert port "Type A" insert port "get $data10.reamed.lablog" write %lablog.txt copy port It gives no problems with versioning and allows to deal with different file and text formats. If anyone remembers the old nntp.r, then he will see, that it's the same principle. One integrated protocol for easy access and a second version allowing all features of the server.
