Hi all,

Ruby 1.8.4
Solaris 10, connecting to a Solaris 8 remote host.

I've got a code snippet like the one below.  It connects fine, performs the 
chdir fine, performs the nlst fine, but chokes on mtime:

FTP.open(host, user, password) do |ftp|
    ftp.chdir(some_dir)
    ftp.nlst.each{ |file|
       puts file                   # prints "audit17717447" fine
       puts ftp.mtime(file, true)  # Boom!  See below
    }
end

Results:

/opt/csw/lib/ruby/1.8/net/ftp.rb:243:in `getresp': 500 'MDTM audit17717447': 
command not understood. (Net::FTPPermError)
         from /opt/csw/lib/ruby/1.8/net/ftp.rb:264:in `sendcmd'
         from /opt/csw/lib/ruby/1.8/monitor.rb:229:in `synchronize'
         from /opt/csw/lib/ruby/1.8/net/ftp.rb:262:in `sendcmd'
         from /opt/csw/lib/ruby/1.8/net/ftp.rb:767:in `mdtm'
         from /opt/csw/lib/ruby/1.8/net/ftp.rb:699:in `mtime'

Am I doing something wrong here? I don't see anything like 'MDTM' mentioned in 
my ftp man page.  Or is it time to parse the long file name format manually?

Thanks,

Dan
