I am trying to get the file size of every file in a list. I was using fopen and ftell, however, that only works if I have read permissions on the file. How can I get the size of a file when I don't have read permissions? he directories have read and execute permissions.
This has to be possible, since I can cd to the directory and do 'ls -l' and see the sizes manually. I do not need to open, inspect, or in any other way bypass the lack of read permission, simply get the size.
Thanks for your help
