Hi-

This FTP client is great so far, but to really use it I
need to be able to control the Binary/Text Mode. This
could be done with a toggle switch for Binary, Text, or
Auto.

WSFTP has a nice way of handling Auto: It allows you
to maintain a list of extensions that are considered to
be text files - all else are then considered binary.

Thanks,

Eric Everman

    hi!

    use "toggle transfer type" button in the remote dir window :)

    the log output does not to be auto-flushed atm, so you might
    refresh the dir after the command to see the type set.

    i'll not close this request because the auto-mode sounds
    really good. :)
