in thread Native newline encoding

I see. Well, in my defense, it was easy to read:

Things (will) get far more messy once the RFCs start dealing with Unicrap.

And think that by using the plural "RFCs" you were talking about more than one... like all of them in general. Or, at the least, all of them related to FTP.

Of course, it's unlikely that the FTP RFCs will be greatly affected by "unicrap" because unicode is just binary.

If you still don't see where I was coming from, there's no point in continuing. Truly.

      And when ftping XML documents, it is normal to do so in using the ftp ascii mode so that the embedded newlines are handled correctly for cross-platform transfers.

      Instead, you should transfer in binary and then just choose an editor that can handle the encoding properly for you.

        Should!? Edicts!

        Binary!? But its exactly what ascii mode was designed for.

        An editor!? Not much good for automated processing.

        hth. Not so much.
