Description

With this method the transfer mode, with which the transfer is performed, may be set. Basically there are two techniques for this. In binary mode each byte is transferred exactly as it is. This mode is used for transferring data which must not be changed in any way. The ascii mode is used for transferring textual data where formatting characters may be changed to local settings.
