Blob Support

Feb 27, 2013 at 7:33 PM
Are there any plans to add support for wildcards/blobs in the uploading/downloading of files via this library? I've got some files that need to pulled on a daily basis, but some of them have random values at the end.

The obvious solution is to use the SFTPClient class to list the directories and do my own regexp, but I'd rather check to see if this is a planned feature.

Currently there is no plans to do that since this is something not defined by SFTP protocol and wildcards could be different and platform specific and implemented differently by clients.

So I guess currently the only choice probably is to read all directory and then apply regex on this. Just something to keep in mind that directory could be very big and contain thousand of files.

If you like you can open it as feature request so I could see if there is enough interest in it as well as possible usage and implementation scenarios.
