Is there way to determine the last modification time of a file via HTTP?
Specifically, I'd like to not download or parse a very large RSS file (300+
items) if it hasn't changed.

in what language are you coding your RSS reader ? there are plenty of
ways to do that, but the right one is specific to the tools you are using.

anyway, that is done using conditional http requests.
