in reply to file size help

This should do what you need:

$bytes = (stat('test.jpg'))[7]; $kbytes = int($bytes/1024);

As an alternative, you can use -s insstead of stat():

$bytes = -s 'test.jpg';

    One note which I would add to this, is that both of these functions employ the stat() function "under the hood" - Information returned from this call is cached such that subsequent calls to stat, lstat or the -X file tests employing the special filehandle consisting of a solitary underline character (_) can employ this cached information rather than again calling the underlying stat() function.

    This behaviour is documented in perlfunc.


    perl -le 'print+unpack"N",pack"B32","00000000000000000000001001101011"'
