	library(SRAdb)
	sra_dbname <- file.path(system.file('extdata', package='SRAdb'), 'SRAmetadb_demo.sqlite')	
	sra_con <- dbConnect(dbDriver("SQLite"), sra_dbname)
	
	## Get file size and date from NCBI ftp site for available fastq files associated with "SRS012041","SRS000290"
	# getSRAinfo (in_acc=c("SRS012041","SRS000290"), sra_con=sra_con, sraType='sra')

## The actual SRAmetadb sqlite database can be downloaded using function: getSRAdbFile. Warning: the actual SRAmetadb sqlite database is pretty large (> 35GB as of May, 2018) after uncompression. So, downloading and uncompressing of the actual SRAmetadb sqlite could take quite a few minutes depending on your network bandwidth.
