bug#6019: 23.1; ange-ftp with VAX


From: Carroll, Tom
Subject: bug#6019: 23.1; ange-ftp with VAX
Date: Fri, 23 Apr 2010 17:09:22 -0400


This is a problem with Emacs 23.1, and NOT with 22.1.1.

Attempting to perform a find-file on a VAX no longer works.  Looking into the ftp buffer
reveals what appears to be the problem: the syntax of a directory command is incorrect.

Note that this does not cause Emacs to crash - just to fail to access remote files.

For example: in connecting to a machine called Pine (not the email program! - we
have a tree motif here) with the user tcarroll results in the following:

dir [.".AP:.TCARROLL]" c:/DOCUME~1/tcarroll/LOCALS~1/Temp/ange-ftp3268PtF

The correct syntax is created by Emacs 22.1:

dir AP:[TCARROLL] c:/DOCUME~1/tcarroll/LOCALS~1/Temp/ange-ftp2724gSG

I hope you understand VAX file syntax - VAX stuff is pretty far out of date these days.

By the way, Emacs is fantastic, and as a technology professional I live half my life in
this software.

Thanks!

Tom
