ftp-ascii-transfers: preference variable

Default value: 0

When Epsilon uses FTP to read a file on a host computer, it normally uses FTP's binary transfer mode, and examines the contents of the file to determine the appropriate line translation. On some kinds of host computers (VMS systems, for example) this doesn't work. If you use such systems, set this variable nonzero. In that case, you'll need to tell Epsilon whenever you transfer a binary file. Epsilon will use FTP's ASCII transfer mode for all files except those where you explicitly set the line transfer mode to binary (for example, by typing Ctrl-U Ctrl-X Ctrl-F, and then pressing B at the line translation prompt).
