Re: How does ftpfs preserve timestamps on FAT32 ?


Silly question, but when I download something with LFTP, ELinks, or
another application on Linux to a FAT32 partition the timestamps aren't
preserved. The same on Cygwin.

Midnight Commander preserves them. What do the other applications lack ?

mc implements stat() on VFS by reading and parsing the output of "ls" on
ftp.  This is not always reliable because the output of "ls" may be
non-standard.  However, it works on most sites with most files.
