How about a BIF to compute the size of an I/O list?
I have made a deep list that I want to output (guess what's it's HTML :-)
I need to make an HTTP header element "Content-Length: ..."
Which is the size of the flattened deep list , but I don't want to flatten it (horrors)
or traverse it (in Erlang) to find the length.
Suitable case for a BIF?
