Asim mentioned earlier the module win32::Dirsize, which copes well with the size problems one can often encounter (witness his use of bigint) in determining the size of remote directories. though he says it is slow, it is certainly faster than summing file sizes via file::find.

here is a scriptlet which demonstrates its use.

use Win32::DirSize; chomp(my $dir = shift || <DATA>); my @dirstats; push @dirstats,sprintf("%-40s%-10s%-10s%-10s\n", "Directory", "Size", "FileCount", "DirCount"); if (dir_size($dir, my $dirstat) == DS_RESULT_OK){ my $size = best_convert(my $unit, $dirstat->{HighSize}, $dirstat->{LowSize}); my $filecount = $dirstat->{FileCount}; my $dircount = $dirstat->{DirCount}; push @dirstats, sprintf("%-40s%-10s%-10s%-10s\n", $dir, sprintf("%8.4f", $size) . $unit, $filecount, $dircount); } push @dirstats, undef; map { print } grep { defined } @dirstats; __DATA__ \\save\farscape$\warez
which produces something like
Directory Size FileCount DirCount \\save\farscape$\warez 717.0521M 4435 999
hope that helps. yes, it uses map in a void context, but i cannot resist map's allure.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
