#264: SCP send not properly setting mtime or atime
 Reporter: wguynes | Owner:
     Type: defect | Status: new
 Priority: normal | Milestone: 1.4.3
Component: examples | Version: 1.4.2
 Keywords: scp examples | Blocked By:
   Blocks: |
 When using libssh2_scp_send_ex() or libssh2_scp_send64() with non-zero
 mtime or atime parameters the time stamp does not get set.

 This is not so much a fault with the library, but that the scp send
 examples are misleading. After the data is actually sent the remote side
 is expecting one NULL byte. This will trigger the remote side to actually
 set the timestamp on the now fully received file. At present the examples
 merely slam the channel closed which the remote side meekly accepts.

 This will also be critical to implementation of any recursive SCP feature
 in the future. Multiple file transfers over one, open channel will require
 the NULL byte after each write data phase.
