AS/400 FTP name formats

Here's a simple way to switch naming formats from LIB to DIR and vice versa.

When FTPing an AS/400 from a non-AS/400 client the command 'quote site namefmt' can be used to display the name format currently used by the FTP server. To switch between LIB and DIR naming conventions using an additional 1 or 0 appended to the above command switches the name format to the preferred naming format.
