Idiom #109 Number of bytes of a type

Set n to the number of bytes of a variable t (of type T).

int n = Marshal.SizeOf(t);
int n;
unsafe
{
    n = sizeof(T);
}
auto n = T.sizeof;
use iso_c_binding
n = c_sizeof(i)
import "reflect"
var t T
tType := reflect.TypeOf(t)
n := tType.Size()
String className = t.getClass().getSimpleName();
int n = 0;
if (className.equals("Byte")) {
	n = 1;
} else if (className.equals("Short")) {
	n = 2;

	n = 4;
} else if (className.equals("Long")) {
	n = 8;
