How can I get file size values? Without Triggering Download Willis msg:1258901 5:49 am on Oct 8, 2004 (gmt 0) Is it possible with PHP to request the size of a file?
Say I had located somewhere on a server "file.zip". Ok sure I could always hardcode the size of that file, but how can I without actually triggering a download determain the size of that file?

use the function -> filesize(string filename) mincklerstraat msg:1258903 8:34 am on Oct 8, 2004 (gmt 0)
If it's not on your own server, and you don't have php5, this isn't likely to work (notice the 'url wrapper' note in the manual page - this usually refers to url's of 'remote' files, i.e. files not on your own server). There's a user-contributed note, though, on using curl to do this: [ ...] be2.php.net Adrian2k4 msg:1258904 7:01 am on Oct 9, 2004 (gmt 0)
the ftp functions might also work. have a look at ftp_size: [ ...] ch2.php.net Willis msg:1258905 11:48 pm on Oct 9, 2004 (gmt 0)
