[REBOL] Rebol and FTP (recursive stuff in particular)
From: mat:eurogamer at: 14-Dec-2000 13:42
I'd like to write a backup script that backs up the files on an FTP
site. This because my cheap mass hosting has already dumped
everyone's files. :-/
Anyhow, there's no shortage of recursive directory routines lying
around the place. Unfortunately they don't work with web sites. The
reason for that being that Rebol appears to keep trying to open fresh
FTP sessions every time you reference a URL - even if there's a
current session logged into the same site. This seems like stupid
behavior given it doesn't logout any of these threads either.
The solution, I suppose, is to do a low level port-based FTP client
type function that operates intelligently.
I'd really rather not do that!
Does anyone have an idea how to try get the high-level FTP stuff in
Rebol not to be so stupid?
