This returns the number of characters in a string value. The returned number can be coerced to a string. Examples:

$MyString = "hello world"; $MyNum = $MyString.size; $MyStringA = $MyString.size

The value of $MyNum will be the number 11, $MyStringA will be the string "11".

This operator can also be used on other attribute data types that are string-like, URL, File, etc.
