The "Cool Title About the AS/400 and Internet" redbook has some sample RPGLE
that does exactly that, but I can't remeber the URL offhand. Basically, you
look for a "226 " or "250 File transfer" at the beginning of a line in the
output file. Some ftp hosts use "226 ", which is always a successful transfer,
and some use "250 " with explanations, because 250 is a general-purpose success
code and can be used with directory changes, etc.
