[REBOL] Re: FTP scheme was Re: Reading empty directories via FTP error

Hi Carl, On Sunday, November 16, 2003, 5:12:08 AM, you wrote: CR> From this I assume my FTP clients can detect they need to start up two CR> directories from the host's URL, whereas REBOL can't. Would this be CR> possible? This is because REBOL does a "CWD ~" and considers ftp://somesite/ to be the user home directory. I think this is how FTP URLs are expected to be; normal FTP clients do not use URLs though, and consider "/" to be the site root and not the user home directory. Making REBOL work the other way around in unpractical because you wouldn't have any way to (automatically) knowing where your home directory is by just using URLs.
