Subject Re: [commons-ftp] newbie qs. can I simply set FTPClient.setFileType(FTP.BINARY_FILE_TYPE)?
Date Thu, 24 Aug 2006 15:57:29 GMT

It is more confusing - I just now, noticed there is an
FTP.IMAGE_FILE_TYPE
So how is this different from FTP.BINARY_FILE_TYPE?
Can I transfer jpg as FTP.BINARY_FILE_TYPE?
