3.2.3. FTP Typecode is Optional

The entire ;type=<typecode> part of a FTP URL is optional. If it is omitted, the client program interpreting the URL must guess the appropriate mode to use. In general, the data content type of a file can only be guessed from the name, e.g., from the suffix of the name; the appropriate type code to be used for transfer of the file can then be deduced from the data content of the file.
