Okay, suppose I am using an ftp client like sftp/gftp to access data on a server. There is a certain directory on that server, the size of which I want to find out. I want a method for finding out the size.
When I mentioned FTP, I did not mean the program "ftp" but the FTP protocol; which is why I put it in capitals.
The size which any ftp-client shows is not the actual size of the folder. I want to determine the actual size of the folder.
