I don't know, but it wouldn't be hard to write. However, I don't think REBOL allows you to alter all the file protections, which could limit its usefulness. -- Carl Read

what limitations? I built myself a recursive file copying algorythm in order to move my glass web site and it worked flawlessly, both sites have user/passwords! I have also done transfers of 200 x 6MB data files directly with a read write pair... no problems there... the speed was not a concern either... I find these two tasks are enough for most applications! is there anything more specific you are wondering? PS: there is a gui ftp file transfer util Right in the ftp drawer of the rebol script library... -MAx

Perhaps one could use telnet inside the same REBOL script to chown chmod etc? - Jason

This should help : http://www.rebol.com/docs/core25.html (section 1.2 Modes Available) -DocKimbel Jason Cunliffe wrote: [...]

i am building on slowly - but i am a beginner so it aint going very fast .. all it does atm is connect to the ftp address [user/pass optional] and shows the top level dir at the momment.

All -read, -write and -execute modes are available in Unix, BeOS, QNX and Elate. owner-read, owner-write, owner-execute and owner-delete are available in AmigaOS. All group- and world- modes are available in AmigaOS >=V39. owner-write is also available in Windows (mapped to the inverse of the Windows "read-only" bit). </quote> But how do you set them? - Jason

Hi Jason, For example, if you want to chmod 764 %filename : set-modes %filename [ owner-read: true owner-write: true owner-execute: true group-read: true group-write: true group-execute: false world-read: true world-write: false world-execute: false ] HTH, -DocKimbel Jason Cunliffe wrote:

We have built a full FTP GUI client in Rebol. It has been sitting in pre-beta for months now because we got bogged down with fixes to another project (which if it were in Rebol would have been fixed in about 2 days). I hate working outside of Rebol! It has several cool features, but the really good stuff will come when we get a full time Rebol programmer on it. But we are slowly getting back up to speed. We are planning to launch a new tools website, and although not everything will be Rebol, eventually our goal is that it will be. We are planning to compete with CuteFTP. If you want to Beta test it (FTPGadget), shoot me an email directly (not through Rebol-list) [Reichart--Prolific--com]. It currently is encapsulated, and runs on Linux and Windows (all flavours). I figure it is about 10 bug fixes from being Beta, and about 10 features form being Version1. An example feature would be Drag and Dropping files instead of highlighting them and selecting a button. Reichart... [Reichart--Prolific--com] Be useful.
