Using stat

Here is my code:
my ($a1,$a2,$a3,$a4,$a5,$a6,$a7,$bits,$a9,$a10,$a11,$a12,$a13) =stat "/home/log.txt";
if ($bits > 75){
    do something;
  }

It works fine but isn't there a cleaner way to use stat to pull just the size of the file?

I'm running perl on a solaris box.
Thanks

$size = (stat("/etc/passwd"))[7];
$size = (-s "/etc/passwd");
