RE: R: FTPing Save File



fixed

Matt

I agree with you there. Then, in the question here, you probably would
precreate the SAVF.

We have a thing where customers are allowed to upload the results of some
data collections. The files are ZIPped versions of SAVFs - you'd not
believe how much a SAVF can be compressed. So our default for FTP is the
home directory, so it's automatically in NAMEFMT 1 on the server.

It makes it uglt, a little, when you want to change to NAMEFMT 0, because
you can't even specify an IFS directory in that format. So I need to CD to
/qsys.lib/vern.lib, say, then NAM 0.

Hey no problem, just trying to help clear up any confusion about FTPing
(like I never type messages I think is absolutely clear to the reader ).
The NAMEFMT 1 deal seems to be a hassle if you are only using QSYS.LIB.


Thank you,

You're right - I misposted. I meant to say that to
use .savf without precreating it, you need to use
NAMEFMT 1

Oops!
