Yes it does. But then you should ask what that support consists of.

libcurl supports retrieving a dir list, and you probably already use it to get
the data to put into the listing parser you mentioned.

libcurl also supports retrieving files with a wildcard from FTP, and that does
parse the directory list. That's a rarely used feature though so I'm not sure
how solid and functional that is against all the world's funky dir list
