Sets the file input size.
When uploading a file to a remote site, this option should be used to tell libcurl what the expected size of the infile is. This value should be passed as a long. See also CURL.SetOptionInFileLarge.

For uploading using SCP, this option is mandatory.

When sending emails using SMTP, this command can be used to specify the optional SIZE parameter for the MAIL FROM command.
This option does not limit how much data libcurl will actually send, as that is controlled entirely by what the input data.
Our CURL.SetInputText and other input functions also set the file size.

See also INFILESIZE option in CURL manual.

MBS( "CURL.SetOptionInFileSize"; $curl; $size )
