Subject: Net::FTP suggested documentation tweak

The Net::FTP documentation describes the LIST/ls/dir commands as taking a "DIR" argument, which is slightly misleading. The RFC indicates that these commands take a "pathname" argument having a site-specific interpretation that may identify a directory name, a group of files, or a single file. It would be useful for the uninitiated to know that commonly encountered ftp servers support file globbing syntax in this pathname.
