the size of the stream in buffer lengths (i.e. how many buffers can be
filled sequentially from the beginning to the end of the stream). The StreamBegin
value is subtracted from the size of the stream before calculating/setting its
variable = object.GetSize(stream)
stream - A SFStream or an object that supports IStream
records - the size in records (buffer lengths).
returned value: The size of the stream in buffer lengths.
When used with SFRecord (see SFRecord.BindTo
method) the size of the buffer is calculated automatically and the
size of the stream size is then calculated as the number of records in
it. Developers interested in low level operations can use this method
to implement advanced techniques.
When setting the stream size and the new size is bigger than the
current stream size the newly allocated space is initialized with
undefined values. When the new size is lower than the current the
records beyond the new stream end are lost.
