RE: cURL problem with ascii download from tandem

The binary file is useless as the file is an indexed
file on the tandem. This is converted when using ascii transfers. But when using
binary transfers the indexes are sent along with the data (quite a mess from a
win32 standpoint).

Same can apply to VMS systems as well.
