DOS 2.5[edit]

DOS 2.5 returns file size in number of sectors. It is required to read the whole file to calculate its size in bytes.

Sparta DOS X[edit]

The Sparta DOS X system stores the size of the file in the directory. The readout of the values is performed with the XIO 39 operation. In the ICAX3, ICAX4, ICAX5 registers values are returned in 24-byte format. Calculation according to the formula: ICAX3 + ICAX4 * 256 + ICAX5 * 65536.

ALGOL 68[edit]

There is no build in way to find the size of an arbitrary file, especially of the file is a special channel, e.g. a tape device.

Conceptually the procedure
PROC set = (REF FILE file,  INT page, line, character)VOID: ~

could be used to do a binary search find the last page's page number. And if it is known that every page has the same number of lines, and every line has the same number of char[s], and the character set is not compressible, then the size could be quickly calculated. Otherwise every page, and every line would have to be tallied.

It is probably much easier to use some an operating system library. This library is not part of the standard ALGOL 68 language definition.

AWK[edit]

Works with: gawk
@load "filefuncs"
function filesize(name         ,fd) {
    if ( stat(name, fd) == -1)

    else
      return fd["size"]
}
BEGIN {
    print filesize("input.txt")
    print filesize("/input.txt")

Some awk's don't have direct access to the filesystem, but can execute system-commands like dir (DOS/Windows) and ls

Bracmat[edit]

This solution assumes that the file can be opened for reading. The fil function is the Bracmat interface to the underlying C functions fopen, fclose, fseek, ftell, fread, fgetc, fwrite, fputc and feof. More than one file can be opened at the same time. Focus is shifted from one open file to another by mentioning the file name as the first argument.

(getFileSize=
  size
.     fil$(!arg,rb)     {read in binary mode}
    & fil$(,END)        {seek to end of file}
    & fil$(,TEL):?size  {tell where we are}
    & fil$(,SET,-1)     {seeking to an impossible position closes the file, and fails}
  | !size               {return the size}
);

There is not function to get the file size, therefore we seek to the end and query the file pointer position.

    # (ok, file) = fseek file 0 FSeekEnd

Fortran[edit]

Since Fortran 95 the size of standard external files may be determined simply by using INQUIRE(SIZE=...). The following previous example pertains to FORTRAN 77 and is now superceded.

    use :: iso_fortran_env, only : FILE_STORAGE_SIZE
    implicit none
    character(len=*),parameter :: filename(*)=[character(len=256) :: 'input.txt', '/input.txt']
    integer                    :: file_size, i
    do i=1,size(filename)
       INQUIRE(FILE=filename(i), SIZE=file_size)  ! return -1 if cannot determine file size
       write(*,*)'size of file '//trim(filename(i))//' is ',file_size * FILE_STORAGE_SIZE /8,' bytes'
    enddo
    end

The original example, now obsolete ...

Alas, although there is a statement INQUIRE(FILE="Input.txt",EXIST = ISTHERE, RECL = RL, etc.) whereby a logical variable ISTHERE has a value (output: assigned left-to-right) according to whether a named file (input: assignment right-to-left) exists or not, and the parameter RECL returns the maximum allowed record length for the file, there is no parameter that reports how many records there are in the file so that the file size remains unknowable. Further, the value returned by RECL is not necessarily related to the file itself, but is likely to be a standard value such as 132, a default used when deciding on the line wrap length with free-format output as in WRITE (6,*) stuff but not necessarily being a limit on the length of a line written or read.

Further, in the ASCII world, text files are often implemented as variable-length records with special characters inline as record boundaries, usually one of CR, CRLF, LFCR, or LF. Without knowing which is in use, the storage taken up by them would be unknown. Other file systems may offer different types of disc files with fixed-size records or variable length records with a record length counter, but this is not standard across all computers.

In other words, Fortran does not specify a linkage to the filesystem whereby these details could be revealed, and not all filesystems maintain them anyway.

But if one wrote Fortran on a B6700 system, its F77 compiler offered additional attributes that could be returned via an INQUIRE statement: MAXRECSIZE really was the length of the longest record in the disc file (whether fixed record lengths or variable record lengths), BLOCKSIZE reported the number of records per block of disc space, AREASIZE the size of a disc space allocation area, and AREAS their number, while KIND reveals the code number of the type of file (not via a .txt suffix or whatever). Armed with these values, the file size could be determined in bits, bytes, words (six characters/word), records, blocks and areas.

These facilities were not carried forward into standardised Fortran 90, etc. So, one is stuck with devising a routine that reads all the records of a disc file, counting their length. This is straightforward, but tedious, as in the following fragment:
   20     READ (INF,21, END = 30) L	!R E A D  A  R E C O R D - but only its length.
   21     FORMAT(Q)			!This obviously indicates the record's length.
          NRECS = NRECS + 1	!CALL LONGCOUNT(NRECS,1)	!C O U N T  A  R E C O R D.
          NNBYTES = NNBYTES + L	!CALL LONGCOUNT(NNBYTES,L)	!Not counting any CRLF (or whatever) gibberish.
          IF (L.LT.RMIN) THEN		!Righto, now for the record lengths.
            RMIN = L			!This one is shorter.
            RMINR = NRECS		!Where it's at.
          ELSE IF (L.GT.RMAX) THEN	!Perhaps instead it is longer?
            RMAX = L			!Longer.
            RMAXR = NRECS		!Where it's at.
          END IF			!So much for the lengths.
          GO TO 20			!All I wanted to know...

The LONGCOUNT routine uses two 32-bit integers (the first parameter being a two-element array) to deliver a much larger capacity, given modern file size opportunities, but this is unnecessary if INTEGER*8 variables are available. The count will not include any contribution from record splitters such as CR, etc. A file more properly thought of as containing binary data (say, integer or floating-point values) will by chance have a CR or LF bit pattern here and there, and they will be taken as marking record splits when reading a file as being FORMATTED, which is the default setting.

Icon doesn't support 'stat'; however, information can be obtained by use of the system function to access command line.

every dir := !["./","/"] do {
   write("Size of ",f := dir || "input.txt"," = ",stat(f).size)  |stop("failure for to stat ",f) 
   }

Note: Icon and Unicon accept both / and \ for directory separators.

Retro[edit]

The simple way is to open and read the size. This may crash if the file does not exist.

with files'
"input.txt" :R open &size sip close drop putn
"/input.txt" :R open &size sip close drop putn

For added stability, check that the returned file handle is not zero:

with files'
"input.txt" :R open over 0 <> [ &size sip close drop ] ifTrue

Or, if you need to do this more often, setup a function that'll also display an error message if the file does not exist:

with files'
: getFileSize ( $-n )
  :R open 0 over =
  [ "File does Not Exist\n" puts ]
  [ &size sip close drop ] if ;

"input.txt" getFileSize putn
"/input.txt" getFileSize putn

REXX[edit]

MS DOS version 1[edit]

This REXX example was executed on a Windows/XP and also a Windows 7 system (in a DOS window),   and
it reports the file's size (in bytes) for both of the required files.

Various REXXes were used for testing:   Regina,   PERSONAL REXX,   PC/REXX,   and   R4.

Note that some operating systems don't have a concept of a   current directory   or a   file system root.

/*REXX program determines a file's size (by reading all the data) in current dir & root.*/
parse arg iFID .                                 /*allow the user specify the  file ID. */
if iFID=='' | iFID==","  then iFID='input.txt'   /*Not specified?  Then use the default.*/
say 'size of     'iFID   "="   fSize(iFID)         'bytes'      /*the current directory.*/
say 'size of \..\'iFID   "="   fSize('\..\'iFID)   'bytes'      /* "    root      "     */
exit                                             /*stick a fork in it,  we're all done. */
/*──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────*/
fSize: parse arg f;   $=0;   do while chars(f)\==0;    $ = $ + length( charin( f, , 1e4) )
                             end   /*while*/;          call lineout f      /*close file.*/
       return $
output   when using the default input:
size of     input.txt = 40 bytes
size of \..\input.txt = 40 bytes

MS DOS version 2[edit]

/*REXX pgm to verify a file's size */
parse arg iFID .                       /*let user specify the file ID.  */
if iFID==''  then iFID="FILESIZ.DAT"   /*Not specified? Then use default*/
say 'size of' iFID':'
Say chars(ifid) '(CR LF included)'
Call lineout ifid /* close the file */
say filesize(ifid) '(net data)'
Call lineout ifid
exit

filesize:  parse arg f;
  sz=0;
  Do while lines(f)\==0

Output:

CMS version[edit]

Note that CMS hasn't a concept of a root.
Also note that the CMS system doesn't normally support the use of periods (.);   it uses blanks instead.

Standard ML[edit]

val size = OS.FileSys.fileSize "input.txt" ;;
val size = OS.FileSys.fileSize "/input.txt" ;

Stata[edit]

To get the size in byte of an arbitrary file, use file seek. Just replace input.txt with \input.txt if the file resides in the root directory of the current disk.

file open f using input.txt, read binary
file seek f eof
file seek f query
display r(loc)
file close f

However, what is usually interesting is the size of a datatset. Use describe, either on the currently loaded dataset, or on a dataset on disk. The describe command will print the file size, but it's possible to use stored results as well.

describe using test.dta
display r(N)*r(width)

Tcl[edit]

file size input.txt
file size /input.txt

Toka[edit]

A trivial method follows:

" input.txt"  "R" file.open dup file.size . file.close
" /input.txt" "R" file.open dup file.size . file.close

A better method would be to define a new function that actually checks whether the file exists:

[ "R" file.open
  dup 0 <> [ dup file.size . file.close ] ifTrue
  drop
] is display-size

" input.txt"  display-size
" /input.txt" display-size

UNIX Shell[edit]

An interactive user would run ls -l input.txt /input.txt to see the file sizes. This task is more difficult for a shell script, that must extract each size from command output.

Using ls[edit]

ls most likely gets the length from the file's inode.

size1=$(ls -l input.txt | tr -s ' ' | cut -d ' ' -f 5)
size2=$(ls -l /input.txt | tr -s ' ' | cut -d ' ' -f 5)

ls -l reports the size in 5th field, with spaces between fields. tr squeezes spaces (because cut needs one single space between fields), and cut extracts 5th field.

echo "# ls:" 
ls  -la  input.txt

echo "# stat:" 
stat input.txt

echo "# Size:" 
size1=$(ls -l input.txt | tr -s ' ' | cut -d ' ' -f 5)
size2=$(wc -c < input.txt | tr -d ' ')
echo $size1, $size2
Output:

# ls:

Using wc[edit]

wc may actually read the whole file and count the bytes. Some implementations, like wc.c from GNU coreutils, can optimize wc -c by getting the length from the file's inode.

size1=$(wc -c < input.txt | tr -d ' ')
size2=$(wc -c < /input.txt | tr -d ' ')

The peculiar use of wc -c < file, not wc -c file, is to prevent printing the file's name. Then wc only reports the size. Some versions of wc print spaces before the number; tr deletes all these spaces.

Using BSD stat[edit]

BSD has stat(1), a nonstandard command. With stat, a shell script can easily get the file size.

Works with: NetBSD version 1.6
Works with: FreeBSD version 4.10
Works with: OpenBSD version 3.8
size1=$(stat -f %z input.txt)
size2=$(stat -f %z /input.txt)

Z Shell[edit]

Works with: zsh
# from module 'zsh/stat', load builtin 'zstat'
zmodload -F zsh/stat b:zstat

size1=$(zstat +size input.txt)
size2=$(zstat +size /input.txt)

Wren[edit]

A file called "input.txt" has already been created which contains the string "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz".

To check the size of a file in the root, just change "input.txt" to "/input.txt" in the following script.

import "io" for File

var name = "input.txt"
System.print("'%(name)' has a a size of %(File.size(name)) bytes")
Output:
'input.txt' has a a size of 26 bytes
