Default LIST, LIST -al, MLSD, STAT -L, whats the difference?

This is the normal list method.

LIST -al
This is a normal list with additional parameters which instruct the server to include hidden files.

MLSD is a new FTP command intended to provide detailed, standardized machine readable directory listings across different server platforms.
Note: Most servers do not show hidden files when MLSD is selected. If MLSD is not supported FlashFXP will fall back to LIST or LIST -al.

Similar to LIST above, however the directory listing is sent via the command channel. This eliminates the need for opening a data connection. This can speed up things up by a couple of seconds on a slow connection.
Note: Not very many servers support this command.
