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.

If you want to do a ftp operation instead of download/upload/directory listing, please use CURL.SetOptionQuote.

File names may be passed with quotes to include spaces in file names.

This function takes variable number of parameters. Pass as much parameters as needed separated by the semicolon in FileMaker.
