That's not asynch, that's taking advantage of the FTP process running in the background. If it were truely asynch then it would keep going. As is, C-g sends an interrupt signal which eventually causes the FTP process to stop transfers. In fact, C-g while you have inferior processes running like that is considered a bad thing and can result in Emacs locking up entirely. -- Rat <firstname.lastname@example.org> |When not in use, Happy Fun Ball should be http://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/ratinox|returned to its special container and kept PGP Public Key: Ask for one today! |under refrigeration.
