ftp download completes, but unzip says otherwise
I ran into a bizzarre error on linux:
I download a file using Net::FTP. Once get() method returns, I call the system unzip function:
system("unzip -j $file");
the majority of the time, it looks as though the downloaded file didn't quite finish:
error [<filepath>]: missing 1862 bytes in zipfile
Why would something like this happen? I suppose, I can write code to wait and handle the error, but why isn't the filesystem updated when Net:FTP::get() returns?
Right. Needed to set binary mode for ftp transfer.
Whatever made it decide to go ascii? I thought binary was automatic nowadays. It's not!
