The BYTELEN function will return the length of the expression as the number of bytes rather than the number of characters.
NOTE: This function is only available in jBASE 4.1 and later
The expression can return a result of any type. The BYTELEN function will then return the byte count of the expression.
The BYTELEN function will always return the actual byte count for the expression; irrespective of the International Mode in operation at the time. This compares with the LEN function, which will return a character count. The character count may differ from the byte count when processing in International Mode.
