Goal: be able to move a file from one directory to another under ftp 
control with FTP command "mv"

so, we try to take the new libURL syntax for a walk (thank you Dave 

get libUrlFtpCommand("PWD","","myLogInName","myPassword")
answer it

result : 257 "/" is current directory

so far so good; but, I can't get to first base with

get libUrlFtpCommand("ls","","myLogInName","myPassword")
answer it

I should get a listing, but instead

500 "LS" command not understood

same for "cd public_html"

500 "CD public_html" command not understood.

Any clues?
