Re^2: Perl Net::FTP put() gives little help on errors
in thread Perl Net::FTP put() gives little help on errors
A guess here, I found this comment in my version of C:/Perl/lib/Net/FTP/dataconn ($VERSION=0.11) in the abort function.
# for some reason if we continously open RETR connections and not
# read a single byte, then abort them after a while the server will
# close our connection, this prevents the unexpected EOF on the
# command channel -- GMB
In this case the code aborts - it does not appear to update the error message.
