[REBOL] Re: Size?

I hope you get a better answer than this from someone else.....but I don't think you can easily. Both size? and info? assume an integer field so they fail in the same way. You could try reading it, but that may take forever, or fail on lack of memory: length? read/binary %big-file If you have Command or a recent Beta with 'Call enabled, you could issue the appropriate operating system command and capture/parse the output -- ls or dir etc. It'd be worth adding a bug report to RAMBO ( ) to report the problem.
