I'm building an application where, through a sockets program, I'm sending out a file to a remote site occasionally.

What I'd like to do is figure out how big my file is before I send it out and as I send out chucks of data, let the users know how much is left to send.

Could someone offer some ideas with a small snippet of code.

Thanks in advnace.
