[fpc-pascal] question about fphttpclient

Dear All,

I use with great success (and pleasure!) the unit fphttpclient under winxp, mageia and raspbian with some 
code like

WITH TFPHTTPCLIENT.CREATE(NIL) DO
    BEGIN
       REP:=GET(REQ);
       FREE;
    END;

after having defined REQ (+initialisation with some url) and REP as ansistring's. To download text and 
html pages, that works very nice.

My questions :
- Can I use the same code to download binary data like gzipped files with no "chance" that the content is 
translated to a special codepage ?
- How can I have access to the date and size informations on the server side ?

Kindest regards, Ched'
