Hi sitepoint,

I have a question about (.zip, .tar, .tar.gz) files. I want to know how you can get the file size of the given file, although I do use mysql to store certain information about the script, NO ACTUAL file is stored in the db, instead that is in a dir. so obviously strlen() would be pointless. I just wanted to know what methods I could use for checking out the file size of the given file.

Thanks, Chris.
