In that time i only say for "consider"
i think that is usefull for libcurl and for all people who use FTP functions
Save time and probaly turn App more fastter with a bulit in version
More easy to code for new libcurl users like me

Like an option on aplication for disable/enable file overwrite on FTP uploads
can be simple reduced at:
if(bOverwriteRemote) curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FTPOVERWRITE, 1L);

what he current need for make that: Callbacks and extra code?

also for add that we need an error code for return When CURLOPT_FTPOVERWRITE is 0 and file exist (350 File Exist)

I have sure if dev open a Poll on website something like:

Should libcurl have a variable to turn OFF/ON file upload overwrite?YesNo

90% for "Yes" i bet

if dev realy not think on add that, please showme a sample code, how to check if file exist
