[REBOL] Re: FTP access via a port spec

Well it looks like I am going to answer to myself :) After writing this mail I suddenly remembered that one should not use 'read or 'write on ports but 'copy, 'pick or 'append instead. So I tried this :
>> copy ftp-port
== [%cgi-bin/ %index.html %index.php %index.php3 %moncompteur.txt] Which worked fine. Doing the same thing by adding a "target: %index.html" in the port spec definition allowed me to access any of the files individually : great ! I can now download and upload to the ftp server at will, but another question comes to mind now : how does one rename/delete files or directories using a port spec ? Is it even possible ? And if it's not, is there another way to do it via ftp when the username contains characters which are illegal in a Rebol URL ("@" for example) ? Thanks, Laurent
