Subject Re: [commons-ftp] newbie qs. can I simply set FTPClient.setFileType(FTP.BINARY_FILE_TYPE)?

I've not tried this with Commons FTP but I can tell you from experience
with other FTP packages that this is not a good idea. You'll basically
end up with files that have the right size but are unreadable in a text
You're better off setting the indicator based on what you know about
the file.
Good Luck!

I need to send across both text and audio files from
Windows desktop to Linux server. 
Instead of keeping track of which is binary and which
is ascii and setting the flag each time, can I simply
set FTPClient.setFileType(FTP.BINARY_FILE_TYPE)?
