Re: Distinguish file and folder on ftp site

Mailing List SVR wrote:
is there a simple way to do this?

ftplib seems unable to distinguish between files and dir, a mimetype
check would be good,
the FTP protocol doesn't specify the format for the output from the LIST
command, so you have to use some heuristics; see e.g. the code in

http://svn.python.org/projects/pytho...s/ftpmirror.py

or use a wrapper for Dan Bernstein's ftpparse library (requires a C
compiler):

http://cr.yp.to/ftpparse.html
http://c0re.23.nu/c0de/ftpparsemodule/
http://effbot.org/downloads/#ftpparse

Not sure what you mean by "mimetype"; that has nothing to do with
directories vs. files, afaik.
