Just an oversite, I'm sure, when Sterling was coding the mapping function. Thanks. I believe that the French version will prove incorrect in mapping "Jui" to June.

Kind of like a traditional command line version of FTP? I guess it would give access to more commands that could be used more flexibly, but it would seem to me that to get any sort of automation would then require developing the more complex scheme that is in the current REBOL FTP. Am I missing the point? Thanks for the feedback, and I apologize in advance if I have totally missed the point. :-) --Scott Jones
