Trouble getting a directory listing before uploading a file

What I need to do is after login to send NLST to get the directory
listing of the current directory. Then get another directory listing
after the final CWD before the STOR is sent to upload the file. I am
using "libcurl/7.11.1 OpenSSL/0.9.6i ipv6 zlib/1.1.3" via

I have set CURLOPT_FTPLISTONLY, and played around with CURLOPT_QUOTE,
CURLOPT_PREQUOTE and CURLOPT_POSTQUOTE and decided they aren't right.
I see the CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST can send a custom command fom
LIST/NLST, but I haven't gotten that working either.

It appears that I could fake it with CURLOPT_NOBODY and do 3
connections, one to just connect and get a directory listing. The
second to get the listing in the final CWD, and the third to STOR the
file. But that is really messy.

I have been searching the archives and haven't yet found anything. Any
and all help would be apperciated.
