It is the array length in bytes. Aside from the strings' contents and
their null terminators, you forgot to take into account:
- each string's length indicator (4 bytes)
- the padding required between each string to align at 8 bytes
You can't get the number of elements in an array like that. You have to
iterate over it.
Hint: use glib. Don't venture yourself with the raw library.
