I'd like to inform you of a nice new feature of Pion file manager:
now it support some hyper-rustic form of Virtual File System (VFS),
as Midnight Commander.

You can change_dir to URL like:


This bring you uniformly in the remote ftp directory, browsing in
the standard way, with normal functions keys.

I plan to add other kind of URL's, like nfs://, samba://,
floppy://, cdrom:// etc.

Pion, as ftp client, is a connectionless client. It use a new
ultra-small binary, "ftpget" (4k!!); I made it stripping ftp part of
snarf, plus my hack. ONE connection, ONE activity.


                ftpget -h host [-u user -p password ] -d dir
                        -f file [ -c command ]

With -c I can to send command like mkdir, rmdir, etc.

ftpget can be useful for batch ftp download also.

Warning: this stuff is not in update.tgz yet.

Mi sarebbe piaciuto concludere con un'affermazione positiva, ma
non me ne vengono in mente. Vanno bene due negative?
