I was browsing through the cfnetwork source today and i noticed
that in CFFTPCreateParsedResourceListing whenever it needs to
create a cfstring corresponding to one of the various textual
bits of info in the line it is parsing it uses the encoding
kCFStringEncodingMacRoman. Is there any particular rationale
Officially, FTP only supports ASCII.
Actually RFC2640 extends this
I would have expected that UTF8 or ISO-latin-1 would have been
I'd say - the Windows encoding matching user's primary language
(cp1251 in my case).
Is this just an oversight?
AFAIK, it's been reported many times, so it's probably not an
oversight. However, Windows users often name files and folders on
FTP with non-ASCII characters, and inability to access them via
Finder is humiliating :(
It doesn't look like it would work with the ftp server built into Mac
OS X either, as that certainly seems to be using utf8. Oh well.
