I am trying to add a line to a report if a certain file is empty. I am trying to use a if statement to do this. Does anyone know the command for getting the file size? Here is what I have:

if
    /bin/find .  -size 0c | grep ${PWD}/raw.txt
then
    /bin/echo "There are no alerts in the audit logs today"  >> ${PWD}/report_${DBSIDS}_`date +%y%m%d`.txt
else
    /bin/sed G raw.txt >> ${PWD}/report_`date +%y%m%d`.txt
