When you do st.Load() in StringTheory you can then use st.Length().

st.Load() calls this Win32 API (along with others):

stGetFileSize(long hFile,*long SizeHigh), long, pascal, name('GetFileSize')

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/fileapi/nf-fileapi-getfilesize

Just tested loading various files into the StringTheory demo.  Seems st.Length() after st.Load() will do what you need.
