x/ zvpixsize

status = xvpixsize(pixsize, type, ihost, rhost)
status = zvpixsize(pixsize, type, ihost, rhost);

Returns the size of a pixel in bytes given the data type and host representation. One of the pixsize routines should be used to figure out the size of a pixel. Do not assume any particular size, like 4 bytes for a REAL. It may be different on other machines. It is valid to use sizeof() in C to get the size of a pixel in the native representation only, but the pixsize routines are the only valid way to get the size of a pixel on any other hosts.
