Just use the stat() or the fstat calls.

Example :

#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <unistd.h>

main(int argc, char **argv) {
struct stat buf ;
int size = 100 ; // octets

  stat("file_name", &buf);
  if (buf.off_t >= size) {
     // do what you have to do
  }
}

man 2 stat will give you more infos.
