Result*Result (Optional)IntegerResulting length


Cursize returns the number of bytes in a string.
In a single byte environment, Cursize and CurChars will return the same result.
In a DBCS environment each character requires two bytes. On an ASCII system, a three character DBCS string will require 6 bytes. On the IBM i, which uses EBCDIC, the shift in and shift out bytes add 2 to all byte length calculations.
