netrw.vim - ftp, dav (cadaver)
I've uploaded v25 of <netrw.vim> under
Its "Not Released" to Bram yet - it needs some testing. Forthwith
1) I no longer have a Win95 machine -- does ftp work properly
for that machine?
2) I've never used cadaver (although I have it) -- does
work properly for both reading and writing? Version 25
has code to support it, but its untested.
3) I've tested it under Unix and Win2K (the latter using
both cmd.exe and bash.exe shells).
4) Once tested, I'll be updating docs on <netrw.vim>.
5) This version of <netrw.vim> supports
user-supplied (optional) functions.
line1 = first new line in current file
line2 = last new line in current file
method= 1 = rcp
2 = ftp+.netrc
3 = ftp
4 = scp
5 = wget
6 = cadaver
The idea here is that sometimes different ftp's
(and, with method, the idea can be extended to
other transfer s/w) dump unwanted junk into
the file (win95's ftp, in my experience, dumped
four unwanted blank lines in). I had a report
where a misconfigured ftp+kerberos dumped
AUTH and KERBEROS messages into the ftp stream.
A NetReadFixup() function which is included with
<netrw.vim> which is in use only for win95, but
also serves as an example (see line 906).
I'd like to get this one done in time for 6.2.
