Strip Prefix

The strip prefix is one or more characters at the beginning of a filename that should be automatically removed by the server when the file is requested. By specifying a given prefix to strip in a conversions rule, such as devel, the user can request the file devei_procman.tar.gz by the command get procman.tar.gz, and the FTP server will perform any other rules that apply to that file and retrieve it from the server. Although this feature is documented, as of version 2.6.2, it has yet to be implemented.
