C++ HugeInt - trouble with size

I am having trouble obtaining the size of a HugeInt object.. (I want to eventually be able to compare to values)

I'm not sure if a convert (via another constructor) is needed or what. Would really appreciate help with this. Thanks

Please see below for for the two constructors..
HugeInt::HugeInt( long value )

   // initialize array to zero
   for ( int i = 0; i < digits; i++ )
      integer[ i ] = 0;   

   // place digits of argument into array 
   for ( int j = digits - 1; value != 0 && j >= 0; j-- )
      integer[ j ] = value % 10;
      value /= 10;
   } // end for
 //???size = sizeof(value);

} // end HugeInt default/conversion constructor
HugeInt::HugeInt( const string &number )
  size = sizeof(number);

   // initialize array to zero
   for ( int i = 0; i < digits; i++ )
      integer[ i ] = 0;

   // place digits of argument into array
   int length = number.size();
//   int size = strlen( &number );

   for ( int j = digits - length, k = 0; j < digits; j++, k++ )
      if ( isdigit( number[ k ] ) ) //ensure that char is digit
         integer[ j ] = number[ k ] - '0';
} // end HugeInt conversion constructor
