function FileSize(var F: File): Integer;
Returns the number of records in a file.
In Object Pascal code, call FileSize to determine the size of the file specified by the file variable F. The size is expressed as the number of records in a record file. Thus:
- If the file is declared as a file of byte, then the record size defaults to one byte, and FileSize returns the number of bytes in the file.
- The Reset procedure can set the record size (in bytes) when it opens the file. In this case, FileSize returns the number of records in the file.
Note: If the file is declared as an untyped file and you do not specify a record size when you call Reset, then FileSize assumes a record size of 128. That is, FileSize gives the number of bytes divided by 128.
