Subject [jira] Commented: (FTPSERVER-184) IODataConnection ASCII mode does not work as expected.
Date Fri, 07 Nov 2008 01:26:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FTPSERVER-184?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12645656#action_12645656

David Latorre commented on FTPSERVER-184:


Sure you are right here, I didn't make myself clear enough Im sorry.

As you (and RFC959) say, when we are sending the file we should transform to NVT-ASCII but
not when we are receiving the file. In this second case, i think that the expected behaviour
is that the text message be written to a file with the default line separator for the platform.
   The sender converts the data from an internal character
            representation to the standard 8-bit NVT-ASCII
            representation (see the Telnet specification).  The receiver
            will convert the data from the standard form to his own
            internal form.

Actually , according to the spec before a RETR ASCII operation is transformed we should be
converting the charset to ASCII , for our machine could be using EBCDIC  to store files and
clients are supposed to expect that files are encoded in NVT-ASCII.

So I don't know ... Any way, this has little priority for me (until someone using a non-ascii-compatible
encoding complains) so we could leave this for the future. Any way I don't like ASCII mode
for it breaks  the 'REST' command. My implementation only supports binary mode.

> New lines in files sent in ASCII mode   are transformed into /r/n  no matter what platform
the ftp server is running on.  But if I'm not wrong, the new EOL should be equal to "line.separator"
. If ASCII mode is going to be supported, this ought to be changed.
