IECHost: directory listing command coming along nicely

I had some time this evening to work at the initial implementation of the directory listing command in IECHost.

Essentially I defined the transmission protocol and identified areas I’d like to move to a separate thread within the client software, but nonetheless I managed to put together a working beta of the client itself accessing the disk directory 🙂

For the time being the listing is shown within the Logging window without rendering control characters and without using an appropriate font set.

Here’s how I plan to render folder listings in future versions of the client:
