Subject: Lynx should inform about file size
Date: Sat, 25 Mar 2000 13:45:29 +0100 (CET)
Package: lynx
Version: 2.8.2dev.25-1
Severity: wishlist

When looking at the page info ('=') one sees:

   Linkname: DeepMagic
        URL: http://www.deepmagic.de/index.php3
    Charset: iso-8859-1 (assumed)
     Server: Apache/1.3.9 (Unix) Debian/GNU PHP/3.0.15
       Date: Sat, 25 Mar 2000 12:53:46 GMT
   Owner(s): None
       size: 74 lines
       mode: normal

However, more interesting to me is the information about the size of the
page in bytes, since I tend to strip newlines where they are not required.

Regards,

	Joey

Content-lenght in bytes is already displayed if

o User mode is set to Advanced,
and
o - the HTTP server has sent a "Content-length" header, or
  - it's a local file (this last one may apply only to current
    2.8.3 devel code, not Debian's 2.8.2).

Sorry, but this bug should probably not be closed since:

   Linkname: Debian Bug report logs - #61085
        URL: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=61085&repeatmerged=yes
    Charset: iso-8859-1 (assumed)
     Server: Apache/1.3.9 (Unix) Debian/GNU PHP/4.0.3pl1
       Date: Fri, 30 Aug 2002 14:13:19 GMT
   Owner(s): None
       size: 154 lines
       mode: normal

The number of lines is shown but not the size of the page, if it is not
a local file and if the web server wasn't able to provide a Content-Length
header.  However, if Lynx is able to count the lines of the received page,
it should also be able to count the bytes (or kbytes).

Please leave this bug report open until this feature is implemented.

Thanks,

	Joey
