Equivalent to stat(file).size


In the julia programming language, the function filesize(path...)

The filesize function is equivalent to stat(file).size and returns the size of a file in bytes.

julia> filesize("file.txt")

This example retrieves the size of the file "file.txt" and returns the result in bytes.

julia> filesize("path/to/directory")
ERROR: SystemError: path/to/directory: No such file or directory

If the specified file or directory doesn't exist, an error will be thrown. Make sure to provide a valid path.

julia> filesize("/absolute/path/to/file.dat")

The filesize function can also be used with absolute paths to retrieve the size of a file.

Common mistake example:

julia> filesize("file.pdf", "file.txt")
ERROR: MethodError: no method matching filesize(::String, ::String)

In this example, the filesize function is called with multiple arguments instead of a single argument representing the file path. Ensure that you pass only one argument representing the file path to the filesize function.
