I'm afraid it doesn't, but Scott's solution does (after I put the
missing bracket in.) Except...
Except I'd got in touch with Nebularis, (one of my hosts), explaining
the problem to them and asking if they got the same error using REBOL
- and they did - and they fixed it: "I got the ftp listings working
via REBOL. My assumption that REBOL expects certain response on an
empty directory was correct. This just required a simple modification
to the FTP server."
Which is fine as far as it goes, except if I've implimented Scott's
solution I can no longer access the Nebularis server...
** Access Error: Network timeout
** Where: confirm
That may be just due to the logic error you think is in Scott's code,
though. So, could you provide a copy of parse-dir-list the way you
think it should be modified and I'll try it to see how it behaves.
And thanks to you and Scott for your replies. It's nice to finally be
getting somewhere with this.
