Subject [PATCH] ftp : skipFailedTransfers and IgnoreNoncriticalErrors
Date Wed, 30 May 2001 05:12:13 GMT
There are two things being addressed in this patch, which jedit makes look
slightly bigger than usual due to its stripping off of the odd trailing

1. support for wu-ftp : the ignoreCriticalErrors flag hints that the system
should ignore non-fatal errors, such as any unexpected responses from the
MKDIR command.

2. the ability to skip file transfers that dont work and keep going.

This is to deal with big bulk deployment tasks, where for any reason it may
not be possible to write to a file at the far end. When the update is
particularly time consuming, printing out the problem and continuing is
preferable to an immediate halt; then whoever reads the log the next morning
can deal with the problem
