FTP and Absolute Directories
[1/4] from: cribbsj::oakwood::org at: 17-Oct-2000 15:01
Some time ago I posted a question asking how I could ftp to a server and go to a directory that was not below my home directory. For example, I would like to ftp to another server here at work, and get a file located in /var/local/datamover/test1/. The problem is that Rebol seems to only let you specify relative directory paths below where you ftp in. So, if I use the ftp command and specify my user id and password, it will only let me reference a directory below my home directory. Perl, using the Net::FTP object lets me ftp using an absolute path. I'm hoping someone out there has an idea how I can do this in Rebol. I would really like to write this application in Rebol instead of Perl. Thanks in advance for the help! -- Jamey Cribbs

Did you try "../../path/path/path/goodfile.txt" ?

Hey, that worked! I did: read ftp://user:[password--111--111--111--111]/../../var/local/datamover/test1/testfile1 and it worked. Thanks very much for the help! On Tue, 17 Oct 2000, you wrote:

Did you try ftp://user:[pass--site]/../../ ? Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[giesse--writeme--com]> - Amigan - REBOL programmer Amiga Group Italia sez. L'Aquila -- http://www.amyresource.it/AGI/
