[Haskell-cafe] hFileSize vs length

I am using GHC 6.2 on windows and am finding that when I open a file 
and use hFileSize I get a different number than I get from reading in 
the file and calculating the length.  I assume this is not a bug, but 
I don't know why its happening.

Also, why isn't there getFileSize function in System.Directory?
