Subject Re: [commons-ftp] newbie qs. can I simply set FTPClient.setFileType(FTP.BINARY_FILE_TYPE)?
Date Thu, 24 Aug 2006 15:09:40 GMT

Is it because of the cr-lf problem between DOS-Unix?
For example, if I send across the jpg in a html file,
and it was set as ascii, will it not display properly?
I know for certain that audio files were not playing
properly because I did not realize I had to
setFileType to binary.
