There is no way to do this in standard C. I suspect that on a lot of
platforms there is no way to do it at all. Some ways you might tackle the
problem are to get machine A to ftp the file under a different name and
rename it when it ha finished. Alternatively machine A could ftp a 2nd
small (perhaps even zero length) file after the first is complete and
machine B could test for the existence of that. However this is an ftp issue
and has nothing to do with the C language.
