I don't think so.. I need to be able to look at rpms that are not installed.
when I do an
rpm -ql redcreek_appplication-2.0.rpm
I get an error message that the package is not installed.. also I need to
check date and size of the files ? Is this possible to do in an rpm ? Am I
doing something wrong in the above command ?

rpm -ql <packagename>
what you want?
-q = query
-l = list files in package
The output is a list of file names (kind of like "ls" but not "ls -l").

Don't worry about the world coming to an end today.
It's already tomorrow in Australia.
