Downloading local files

Recommended Posts



Im writing a script that will download a file on a local network (actually across a WAN) and I would like to create a progress meter to let the user know something is happening.

I have found a few download scripts but they are all based on internet files rather that local ones and so the macro @InetGetBytesRead doesn't work.

Is there a local file version of @InetGetBytesRead or a better way to do a progress meter for a WAN file download?
