Filesize differences between versions using identify

Hi,

We're looking to upgrade from 6.8.9 to 7.0.2 but one of things that's tripped us up is the file size is returning differently.

Command:

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/identify -ping -format %wx%hx%b, /file1 /file2 /file3 /file4 /file5
Output:

Code: Select all

6.8.9: 1024x1024x73280B,420x420x22376B,200x200x7372B,70x70x1809B,90x90x2498B,
7.0.2: 1024x1024x73.3KB,420x420x22.4KB,200x200x7.37KB,70x70x1.81KB,90x90x2.5KB
Now our code depends on a integer size, i.e. bytes. Right now it just lops of the B. Can identify be changed (I couldn't see anything to do it) or is this just how it is now? I'd prefer to avoid converting it in the code if I can!

Full versions:

Code: Select all
