The FtpLs method returns a listing (in short format) of a directory on the server. The directory listing is placed in the attribute Response as an Object Rexx array of lines. The array will be empty if this method encounters an error.

Each member of the array containing the directory listing usually only contains the name of a file in the specified directory. But the format may be different in some cases.
