Description:

$directory = '/thedir/thatiwantto/count'; print "\n\n"; print CountSize($directory); print "\n\n"; sub CountSize { my ($directory) = $_[0]; my ($ask, $filesize, $item, $size, @raiz); @raiz = glob("$directory/*.*") || warn(); foreach $item (@raiz) { $ask = -d $item; if ($ask) { $size += &CountSize($item); } else { $size += -s $item; } } return($size); }
It should return the total size of all the tree. In Windows, it works, but in Linux, it doesn't. It returns only the current directory file sizes. What should I do?

File::Find is part of the standard distro, reliable and portable.

use File::Find; my $dir = 'c:/test'; my $size = 0; find( \&size, $dir ); sub size { # we get each filename in $_ my $file_size = -s $_; $size += $file_size; print "Found $_ $file_size Bytes\n"; } print "$size Bytes in '$dir' and all subdirs\n";

Here is a cross-platform way of doing it.

use strict; my $dir = '.'; print &dir_tree_size($dir) . "\n"; exit 0; sub dir_tree_size { my $dir = shift; my ($i,$total); $total = 0; opendir DIR, $dir; my @files = grep !/^\.\.?$/, readdir DIR; for $i (@files) { if(-d $i) { $total += dir_tree_size($dir . "/$i") } else { $total += -s $i} } return $total; }

# crulx's solution has a bug - # readdir needs to have the directory glued back # on once you're looking at files outside the # original directory use strict; my $dir = '.'; print &dir_tree_size($dir) . "\n"; exit 0; sub dir_tree_size { my $dir = shift; my ($i,$total, $f); $total = 0; opendir DIR, $dir; my @files = grep !/^\.\.?$/, readdir DIR; for $i (@files) { $f = "$dir/$i"; if(-d $f) { $total += dir_tree_size($f) } else { $total += -s $f} } return $total; }
