The file in the example below was 5 bytes long. What is the length of the file after the following code gets executed?

The answer is supposed to be 6 but I don't see how it computes this answer?

First the content of the file is overwritten and not appended.
Then, "BYE" is composed of three characters and a character is 2-bytes long => 3*2 = 6 bytes !

Thanks for the info. You're GOOD!
 
Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
