Dear List-members,

to download a file from the net, the function download.file(..)
does the job.  However, before embarking on the download, I would
like to find out how large the file is.  Is there a way to know it?

Most easily, this question has been asked before, but I am new to 
the list.

Regards, with thanks in advance,

Adelchi Azzalini
