TIdFinger.Finger Method

Perfoms a Finger query and retrieves the results.

function Finger: String;

String - Response from the Finger query.

Finger is a String function used to send the Query to the specified Host and Port, and to receive the response from the finger server. Assign the IP address or host name for the server using Host or CompleteQurey before calling the Finger method. 

Assign a value to VerboseOutput to indicate if the server should send a detailed response for the Finger query. When VerboseOutput is True, the '/W' token is added to the query for the Finger server. 

Finger calls Connect to establish both the connection and the IOHandler for the client. 

Finger uses the IOHandler for the connection to write the Finger query, and attempts to read all query response data. The return value for the method is the Finger query response data read from the server. 

Finger calls Disconnect to close both the connection and the IOHandler for the client.
