summary: ASCII mode for SFTP
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: tricky: Needs many tuits.
priority: medium: This should be fixed one day.

Until recently, the SCP and SFTP protocols had no notion of
transferring a file in anything other than binary mode. (This is still
true of SCP.)

The current draft protocol spec of SFTP proposes a means of
implementing ASCII transfer. At some point PSCP/PSFTP may implement
this proposal.

Audit trail for this wish.
