Sets the list of FTP or SFTP commands to pass to the server after your FTP transfer request.
The commands will only be run if no error occurred. Disable this operation again by passing no value to this function.

This option takes a list of items. So this function takes a variable number of arguments. If you call function with 2 parameters, you set an empty list. If you call it with 5 parameters, you set a list with 3 values.
If you want to do a ftp operation instead of download/upload/directory listing, please use CURL.SetOptionQuote.

See also CURL.SetOptionQuote and CURL.SetOptionPreQuote.
File names may be passed with quotes to include spaces in file names.

See also POSTQUOTE option in CURL manual.
