Paul Sergeant raised a question on the old Genero list back in Feb 2007 re how fgl_getfile/fgl_putfile work - and I can't see an answer to it.

If you copy ascii files using these functions, should they do any DOS/Unix conversion or should you have to do the conversion yourself?

Steve,

Files are transmitted as binary files - we don't look at the content, simply transfer the bytes.
Therefore it will be up to you to make the conversion.

Pierre,
Would it be possible at some point for these functions to perform the conversions as they copy the file ?  and/or the ability to open a channel that reads/writes direct from/to a file on the client (with the correct EOR marker)?
