net2ftp can’t get me into a subdirectory.
it times out after 3 minutes and tells me so.
i may have generated a lot of files in this subdirectory,
and that might be causing the problem.
i also tried to delete them – or “unlink” them in perl? –
but i had a leading “>” on the filenames, which could
also be causing the problem.
i try to ftp into the subdirectory on my mac, but
it just kinda hangs and never actually gets into it.
for now, all i want to do is delete this subdirectory.
is there any way to do that? (when i try to do it
through the net2ftp thingee, again it times out.)
does anyone have a perl program to list filenames
in a subdirectory? and then also to delete them?
and, for future knowledge, how many files can i
reasonably put in one subdirectory?
thanks in advance for any help…
