dosGetFileSize(string FileName)

Returns an integer containing the size of the specified file in kilobytes. 

Parameter :

FileName : A string specifying the drive, location and name of the file to search for using a pathname. For example, "C:\Docs\MyDoc.txt" on Windows or "My Mac:Docs:My Doc" on MacOS. On Windows, all files and folders in the pathname may be specified by their Windows name or MS-DOS name. 

Return Value : An integer indicating the file size in kilobytes. On MacOS, the returned value will always be equal to or smaller than 2 GB even if the file is larger than 2 GB. On Windows, the returned value will always be equal to or smaller than 4 GB even if the file is larger than 4 GB. If an error occurs, 0 is returned, in which case dosGetLastError() should be called to determine the cause of the error. A return value of 0 does not necessarily imply an error, the function may return zero for files smaller than 1024 bytes in size. 

Possible Returned Error Codes via dosGetLastError() :
10014 : File expected, a reference to a drive or folder was given. 
10016 : File not found.
