Hola! :(

Does any of you guys knows a quick way to get the number of

subdirectories/files under a specific parent directory? :ph34r:

I already have an implementation with recursion in it but is still a littlel slow. I was thinking of perhaps some system command similar to "dir". Something that will give me this information almost instantly!

The - 3 is necessary, because it also counts the directories "." and "..", additionally another nameless something dir (might be the behaviour of FileFindNextFile). Well, it works for me with the "-3", have a look into it on your own :ph34r:

I save @error in a variable to be able to use other functions in the loop, that change @error.

My code:

FileChangeDir("dirname")
$handle = FileFindFirstFile("*")
$counter = 0
$error = 0

While $error <> 1
    $Object = FileFindNextFile($handle)
    $error = @error
    MsgBox(0,"",$Object)
    $counter = $counter+1
WEnd

MsgBox(0,"", $counter - 3)

PS:

FileFindFirstFile:

"*" as wildcard for any file or directory

FileFindNextFile:

Failure: Sets @error to 1 if no more files/directories match the search.

Guess you could also do it with a DOS command. Don't know exactly right know, but check this Link for inspiration (or many other topics).
