Subject [jira] [Commented] (NET-566) UnixFTPEntryParser Drops Leading Spaces from File Names
Date Thu, 01 Jan 2015 23:27:13 GMT


Sebb commented on NET-566:

Unix file names can contain just about any character except '/'.
They can start with a space, but creating such files is not a good idea as it makes them tricky
to process.
Unix even supports a file name consisting of a single space.

NET already supports MLSD, for example:

and MLST

which may be useful.

However note that MLSD/MLST are not supported by all ftp servers. Not sure about NLST.

(line 106) consumes all spaces between the timestamp and the file name.
> The {{}} property ends up getting a value with stripped leading spaces.
