To list the contents of a remote server, specify the remote server with no local target:
For subfolders, give the pathname followed by a forward slash '/':
Absolute paths, if allowed by the server, should be preceded by a forward slash '/':
The server always uses forward slash '/' as its path delimiter, regardless of platform. However, Windows servers can also specify a volume identifier like this:
Note that this use of volume identifiers will only make sense to Windows versions of the ExpeDat server.
Pathnames containing non-ASCII characters, such as UTF-8 multibyte characters, will be passed through to stdout as-is. This may cause problems for shell scripts or other programs which cannot handle non-ASCII characters.
Hidden & Invisible Files
For servers which support POSIX symbolic links (all but Windows), information about the target will be displayed as follows:
|Valid File||The mode, size, and modification date of the target will be displayed. The name of the link will be followed by "->" and the path of the target.|
|Valid Folder||The mode and modification date of the target will be displayed. The name of the link will be followed by "->", then the path of the target ending with "/".|
|Broken Link||The mode and modification date of the link will be displayed. The name of the link will be followed by "-X", then the path of the target.|
Symbolic links are also identified by an "l" as the first character of the mode.
