I used IglooFTP on RH and slack. It doesn't work on my 64-bit kubuntu,
so I have been using gftp, which I really like, with one exception:
filespecs are cumbersome.
Example, I want to view *only* files with a .py extension.
I choose Local->Change Filespec and enter
*.py
I get a directory listing of .py (python source), .pyc (byte-compiled python),
and .py~ (vim backups of python source). Yikes!
Since I work with large projects with a lot of files, the result is a lot to
weed thru.
I've tried a filespec like .py^ or .py\b for word boundaries, but then get
no results at all.
Does anyone have any comments or know what filespec expression might work better?
Thanks
Tim

Maybe .py$ works better, if the filespec indeed supports regular expressions?

.py$ doesn't work at all. BTW: this isn't just gftp, I installed filezilla and
it has the same limitations, as did IglooFTP. You'd think it would be as simple
as `ls *.py' wouldn't you?
Perhaps I must live with it.
Thanks

"mls *.py" is a correct ftp command
"ls *.py" is not

ls *.py works on my command-line ftp. Not sure what you're using.
