  • File Length of web file

    Is it possible to get the file length of a file on the web that you are downloading with TCP Open ??

    I don't know you can do it with the intrinsic TCP functions, but I can't think of any reason you could not do an InternetOpenUrl and query the file size independent of those functions.

    (Hell, it's a thought)

      It's in the header, in the Content-Length attribute. Here's the header and first few lines from www.powerbasic.com:

      Code:
      HTTP/1.1 200 OK
