Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Total number of files in the folder should be listed Post 302851065 by Don Cragun on Friday 6th of September 2013 02:35:43 PM

Assuming that you want the names of files in the current directory (including those whose first character is a dot (.)) and that no file in the current directory have names that contain a newline character:
ls -f | wc -l

will give you the number of files in the current directory.

If you want a sorted list of the files in the current directory followed by the number of files, try:
ls -a | tee /dev/tty | wc -l

For the LIST DIRECTIVE, REMOTE and/or CODE can be empty: LIST "" "" - list all configured remote names LIST REMOTE "" - list all codes of REMOTE LIST REMOTE CODE - list only CODE of REMOTE The SIMULATE command only works if it has been explicitly enabled in lircd. -h --help display usage summary -v --version display version -d --device use given lircd socket [/var/run/lirc/lircd] -a --address=host[:port] connect to lircd at this address -# --count=n send command n times EXAMPLES
