#5400 new Feature request

Remove/Add file extension

Reported by: Knut Opdal Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: File extension MVS zOS Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows 7 Enterprise


I use FTP between Windows and MVS(zOS). On MVS it's not allowed with file extensions.
See my example when I try:
Respons: 501 Invalid data set name "'TST1U.TU545.TLNSRCE.NEW.NEW(POW900SD.EXP)'". Use MVS Dsname conventions.
Feil: Critical file transfer error

It would be really helpfull if I add to a list all file extensions who should be removed for that server. Eg. .CBL, .COB, .SQL, when files with this extensions is tried transferred TO my server it should be removed. It could also be helpfull with a conversion when transferring from MVS to Windows. Eg. a list with dataset filter to a fileextension, *COBSRCE*=>.CBL, *DDL*=>.SQL.

This is a renaming issue, not a file filtering.

An example:
File on Windows is eg. POW900SD.EXP, when moving to MVS, file-extension .EXP should be removed.
When moving from from MVS to Windows, file-extension .EXP should be added if transferred from *TLNSRCE* dataset.

Taken from #9362:

Feature request: extension conversion

I edit files in a windows environment. The file extension tells the editor how to behave. The target platform is legacy, where a filename has 1-8 characters only. Request example for copy file from windows to legacy: FILENAM1.CBL -> FILENAM1. Also: FILENAM2.SBL -> FILENAM2. Example for copy file from legacy to windows: PROGNAM1-> PROGNAM1.CBL (only one possibility here). WinFTP Pro has this feature.
