I haven't changed any parts of the client/server protocol because it would break compatibility with Unix clients. The Unix server will not return a modification time in all cases (not sure in what circumstances, but the code does return silently if the RCS functions don't return a time) - the 'Valid_response' only identifies a willingness to handle the response - it does not mandate it. File attribute responses can occur in any order, or not occur, depending on what the server decides to do. Tony -- "Wipe Info uses hexadecimal values to wipe files.
