returns the size of the data source


#include <libpmem2.h>

struct pmem2_source;
int pmem2_source_size(const struct pmem2_source *source, size_t *size);


The pmem2_source_size() function retrieves the size of the file in bytes pointed by file descriptor or handle stored in the source and puts it in *size.

This function is a portable replacement for OS-specific APIs. On Linux, it hides the quirkiness of Device DAX size detection.

The pmem2_source_size() function returns 0 on success. If the function fails, the *size variable is left unmodified and a negative error code is returned.
