Version: 3 | Requires: CF5 | Library: FileSysLib

Description:
This function will return the length of a file. It uses the standard Java File object, which makes it very fast under ColdfusionMX. If a directory is passed instead of a file, the UDF will return the total size of all files in the directory. If the file or folder does not exist, it will return 0.

Return Values:
Returns a number.

Example:

<cfset filename="c:\autoexec.bat">
<cfoutput>
	Length: #fileSize(filename)#<br>
</cfoutput>

Parameters:

Name Description Required
filename The filename or directory path. Yes
