    I upgraded to OS 10.2 and tried

    tell application "Fetch 4.0.2"
    set use LIST minus al to true
    end tell

    but get error
    "Can't set use LIST minus al to true"

    In Misc Preferences I HAVE set "Send List -al ..."

    Cannot see ".nnn" files on UNIX server.

    Recommendations?

    Thanks,

    Now that there's a "Send LIST -al to UNIX Servers" option in the Obscure Options pop-up there shouldn't be a need to use AppleScript to change this setting. Could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window? I'm curious as to whether Fetch is in fact sending the LIST -al command.

    Thanks,

    From the "Transcript Window"

    CWD /usr/local/*******
    250 CWD command successful.
    PWD
    257 "/usr/local/**********" is current directory.
    PASV
    227 Entering Passive Mode (**********).
    LIST -al
    150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list
    drwxr-xr-x 51 user group 4096 Sep 17 17:12 .
    drwxr-xr-x 14 user group 512 Sep 17 14:52 ..
    -rw-r--r-- 1 user group 390 Sep 17 17:11 .htaccess

    So it "is" sending the LIST -al but the . , .. , and .htaccess do NOT show up in the fetch window for the directory. (NOTE, the **** [asterisks] were inserted by me as I did not want to publicize the server IP addess and pathnames)

    Have you checked the "Omit file names beginning with a period" box in the Misc section of Preferences?

    Ah ha. Guess this falls under the old saw, "Can't see the forest for the trees ... "

    That was it, of course. Works now.

    Thanks.
