    Getting file dates for remote files using NetLingo?

    Applied CD Level 1
      We’ve been distributing PDFs on CD with simple Director menus for years. Now we want to add the ability to check in the background for updates to the PDFs and offer an opportunity to download newer documents when required.

      Does anyone know if NetLingo can retrieve the file dates of a remote file stored at a specified URL without downloading the file first? I know an FTP xtra would make this simple but I’m curious if we can pull this off with NetLingo alone. I also know I could write a server side helper script in ASP or PHP but I’d like to avoid too much interaction with the server … I’m trying to keep this simple and sweet.
