Does ScriptFTP support "MODE Z" on-the-fly compression for file transfers?

Feature added.

Hi there,

Although ScriptFTP checks if MODE Z is supported by the FTP server before using it, I've found that many FTP servers out there drop an error and interrupt the file transfers when MODE Z is used.

MODE Z has been disabled by default and to activate it a new command has been created: SETMODEZ

To activate it: SETMODEZ(ON)

As usual, this command should be used before calling PUTFILE, GETFILE or SYNC.

This modification will be officially available in ScriptFTP 3.2. In the meantime the patched version of ScriptFTP 3.1 is:


Thoughts, suggestion or anything else are welcome.
