ftp warned me about bare line endings when I used its get command to bring a 
file from a Windows box to my Linux box. The warning said that I may not have 
gotten the whole file. The file is a plain text file.
* I know that Linux line endings are different from Windows line endings from 
the little Perl that I know.
* I transferred the file using ASCII mode.

How can I check to see if I got the whole thing? It was created by a Drupal 
module that created a huge SQL statement that transfers data to my site 
database, so I can't read it in a text editor and be sure that it's all there. 
I don't know whatt's supposed to be there.
