That capability was added in View 1.3 -- before that, any info? on a URL *would* download the whole file just so you could get the length.....That was even more annoying (I know, cos I once tried info on multi-meg urls) http://www.rebol.net/notes/rv13-changes.html

But, as Gabriele says, it doesn't seem to work with Apache and CGIs -- I suppose Apache would have to run the CGI, capture the output to get the size, and then return that value. If your investigation turns up a way to do that, please let me know, Sunanda.
