digitalmars.D - std.file documentation update and suggestion
- Niko Korhonen (16/16) Aug 12 2005 The docs have an incorrect signature for std.file's getSize function.
The docs have an incorrect signature for std.file's getSize function. According to the documentation it's: uint getSize(char name) Whereas the Phobos source says: ulong getSize(char name) The documentation suggests that the function can't handle file sizes over 4 GB. Also I was wondering whether the following would be useful: void setSize(char name, ulong size) Most operating systems allow setting the length of a file directly without fwriting it to the specified length. I don't know about others, but at least I need this kind of functionality and have rolled out my own implementation of the concept. -- Niko Korhonen SW Developer
