Section: 220.127.116.11 [fs.op.file_size] Status: Resolved Submitter: Gor Nishanov Opened: 2014-05-22 Last modified: 2017-03-19
View all issues with Resolved status.
On Windows, the
structure, which is the underlying data type for
directory_entry, contains the file size as one of the fields.
Thus efficient enumeration of files and getting their sizes is possible without doing a separate query for the file size.
[17 Jun 2014 Rapperswil LWG will investigate issue at a subsequent meeting.]
[23 Nov 2015 Editorally correct name of data structure mentioned in discussion.]
[Mar 2016 Jacksonville Beman to provide paper about this]
