Seriously... reinventing the wheel is fun... And yes I find it better than lftp for interactive use. Just like I find zsh better for interactive use compared to bash.
lftp still has it's uses(i.e. great for scripting it). yafc makes working with ftp a pleasure...
And yes... there will always be more apps that do the same thing more libs that do the same thing etc...
It's that state of: "Just because I can I will" :)
why more ftp clients ?
Is it better than lftp ? No offense, but that 400+ text editors and heck lot of ftp clients make me think of wheel reinventing.
it is to sftp what ncftp is to "normal" ftp.
By that I mean it makes it so much easier.
New version ?
As far as I see there is already a "new" version on SF.net (0.7.10). I wonder if the author is announcing updates here....
I really like this piece of software. In particular the built-in name-completion for ssh, something I've really missed in other ftp-clients. And a "recursive"-option for all the apropriate functions; Hurray!
it's like better version of ncFTP :)
NOHUP mode with email notification rocks!
An open, cross-platform journaling program.
A scientific plotting package.
