(flatsize <expr> ) <expr> - an expression
The FLATSIZE function determines the character length that would be printed if the <expr> were printed using PRIN1. This means that the <expr> would be printed without a new-line. If <expr> is a string, it would be printed with quotes around the string. The print character length is returned as the result.
