Are the meta-data located inside the file, or outside the file? Does
 "meta-data" mean the file's size, modification time, etc.?

YES

What sort of connection exists between the desired file and the client?
If
it is a network connection, have you considered using SSH to gather the
required information?
I'm student and it's for a TP and it's just in localhost
