[REBOL] FTP Absolute Path Problem Re:

From: jelinem1:nationwide at: 18-Sep-2000 13:31

I don't think this is an FTP issue; I believe the issue has to do with your machine's setup. Your machine recognizes your user name and sets your HOME path. Your machine forces FTP to prepend the HOME path. I could be wrong, but I don't think FTP can work around this. This is a security feature of the machine. You could always devise a work-around like %../../<path> or creating a soft-link (in your HOME directory) to the directory you want. - Michael Jelinek [cribbsj--oakwood--org] on 09/18/2000 11:32:51 AM From: [cribbsj--oakwood--org] on 09/18/2000 11:32 AM Please respond to [list--rebol--com] To: [list--rebol--com] cc: Subject: [REBOL] FTP Absolute Path Problem I'm having the following problem: I want to load a file that resides on a server under the absolute path of /var/local/ecdr/data/. However, when I use the ftp command, it always thinks I want to do relative addressing from my home directory. I have tried: records: load ftp://ecdr:[ecdr--130--102--200--43]/var/local/ecdr/data/cdr_out and also: records: load ftp://ecdr:[ecdr--130--102--200--43]//var/local/ecdr/data/cdr_out and even: records: load join ftp://ecdr:[ecdr--130--102--200--43] %/var/local/ecdr/data/cdr_out but it always tells me that rebol is looking for ./var/local/ecdr/data/cdr_out . In other words, it is looking under /home/cribbsj/var/local/ecdr/data/cdr_out, which, of course, does not exist. In short, does anyone know how to make the ftp command use absolute path addressing as opposed to relative path addressing? Any help would be greatly appreciated! -- Jamey Cribbs Sr. Technical Consultant
