If it's really a file, then it would probably just stat it to get the
length. For dynamic content, there is a mechanism in HTTP/1.1 that
allows you to transfer the content as an unspecified number of chunks,
each prefixed with its own content-length. Don't know if any httpd
actually implements it though.
