[REBOL] Re: Reading empty directories via FTP error

Spot on.

No, it turns out to be easy. You may have missed my email with the solution - I didn't get it sent back to me. But you can see it on the REBOL website list page here: Mulitple lines are indicated by the "-" just after the 3 digit response code sent back by the server - its like a continuation flag ie "there are more lines coming". REBOL has the code built-in to handle multiple lines (net-utils/confirm/mulitple) - it just wasn't turned on. Regards, Brett.
