I've always (since Turbo Pascal and now with Free Pascal) used FILESIZE. It
works like a charm.
Even if you do it in assembly its done the same as its done in pascal.

I am wondering how to get the file size reported by the OS for a particular
file without opening it.  I tried to search for ‘Free Pascal File Size’
and variations but all I get are things like this:


which is not what I’m looking for.

I’ve been looking through the sysutils reference here:


and I see disk size, but not file size…

Could someone please point me in the right direction?
