Use Nikos Askitas's -ashell- (SSC) command:

********************************
ssc install ashell, replace
ashell dir "auto.dta" -S
return list
// parse the output
local m = regexm("`r(o7)'", "[0-9,]+ bytes")
di "The file size is: `=regexs(0)'."
********************************

belongs to Flg(κ) (where v is the free variable of r).
