The quickest way...

This sounds to "inode count" to me...

maybe use Inline C => ... and point your arrows to stat and the inode table?.

I agree, quickest and simplest are not always the same thing... with great speed comes great responsability... and fantastic headaches too

[LanX]: pm != tk ;)
[Corion]: zentara: Most likely they used something like [http://www. perlmonks.org/? node=123456] instead of [id://123456], which uses whatever domain you're visiting from
[LanX]: hmm... Actually this could be used for a phishing exploit ...
[LanX]: ... well like always :)
[zentara]: LanX One day, I will see a great interest in Tk. It's small, self-contained, needs very few external libraries, AND makes it easy to make high-contrast displays. :-)
[zentara]: Corion in this cased they left the www. out
[zentara]: /d// :-)
[LanX]: i like tk, just joking. but what about modern styles?
