Ah yes. Guru tricks not yet in the documentation most likely.

The fix in the next release will be that the error is caught and the date wil be set to NONE. You'll see no difference in file or directory reading but if you use MODIFIED? or INFO? on one of these files, the date will come back as NONE. Basically, and FTP server that is responding with localized dates is bad. The only way to deal with that would then be to have all abbreviations for all languages of the world in your program and that's ridiculous. Sterling
