Hello. I'm writing a program using M$ Visual C++. Is there a simple API for getting the file size? Something like GetFileSize? :) I'm trying to read out bytes from a binary file, and I think it's prematurely reading out an EOF character. So, I need to query the filesize from the OS. Thanks.

Code:
FILE* pFile = fopen();
if (pFile)
{
    int fileNum = _fileno(pFile);
    HANDLE hFile = (HANDLE) _get_osfhandle(fileNum);
    GetFileSize(hFile);
}
