The problem with the code is that different web servers will spit out different HTML for a directory listing. It works for CrossWire & I stopped at that. There is probably a better way of doing it all, but I have up at that point cause my c++ skills are way too rusty & I'd prefer to rewrite it all in ObjC instead. Which I'll do at some point, if I ever have time. And do it properly ;)
