Irresponsible Sharing

Its pretty frustrating sometimes when you want some quick scripts to do your job and some of the given scripts are not only mediocre but non functioning.
Today i had the urge to quickly backup a directory i have to a remote ftp, so i figured that surely someone must have written a python script on this! After 30 minutes of searching and looking around, i found :

But guess what, the code don't work on Windows. The bugs you get from it are very typical of newbie who have never coded in dual platform. For eg, it expect the path to be in "/" where else when it ran on windows it automatically converts to "\" and it bombed out on assertions.

Dumb? No. Just typical and if i knew i gonna spend 30 minutes to do this i might as well fire-up my FTP client and do it.

Gee guys/gals, if you want to post some codes and scripts on the Internet for the community, please at least raise its quality to an acceptable level. We have enough junk codes shared, we don't need any more of it, or the least, label the project that it only works on Linux/MAC/Windows.
