.size()

The .size() method returns the size of a given string in terms of bytes. It functions just like the .length() method, but .size() is there to follow the consistency of other standard library containers (e.g., maps and vectors).

Syntax

string.size();

The string must be defined with std::string prior to using with the .size() method.
