dt_fp_size - retrieve the global fingerprint size

Generic Prototype

dt_fp_size(void) => dt_Integer

C Prototype

#include "dt_finger.h"

dt_Integer dt_fp_size(void)

FORTRAN Prototype

include ''

integer*4 dt_f_fp_size()


This function is obsolete, as of version 4.42. The global size value is only used by the obsolete functions dt_fp_alloc(), dt_fp_fingerprint(), and dt_fp_fold().

Returns the global fingerprint size. All fingerprints created by dt_fp_alloc(3) and dt_fp_fingerprint(3) are initially this size. All fingerprint sizes are measured in bits (not bytes or ints).

Return Value

Returns an integer number of bits in a fingerprint.
