Octets calculation?

I was reading over the POP3 RFC  (RFC 1939) and it states that message sizes must be
in octets, but that it's different in bytes in that they are nonambigious (ie. bytes vary from platform
to platform).  So is there a way to get octets from a file?  In order to do that I'd most likely need
the bit count of a file if that's even possible.
