I've downloaded, with ftp, a file which contains too many .s for a OpenVMS system.
How can I remove the extra dot?
I have solved it:
Native OpenVMS uses the dots to delimit the file name, type and version numbers. The first dot in this case has '^' preceding it to indicate that it is just part of the name, is not the end of the name and start of the type (which is jar).
The parse_style=extended allows this to work with a file from another realm where the dot has no special meaning to the file system.
