Possible to send a FTP command without doing a directory listing?

  First off, wanted to thank Daniel and others involved for this awesome library. Great work!

I want to be able to keep a FTP connection alive without opening a new FTP data channel.

My issue is that I can't figure out how to send a FTP control command without also doing a directory listing or a file operation. Is it possible to send a control command (eg, PWD) without also performing a directory listing on an already open handle that is idle? I've played around with QUOTE command (that does a dir listing), though.

I am running on win64.

Any help would be very much appreciated.
