in reply to Re^2: quickest way to find number of files in a directory?
in thread quickest way to find number of files in a directory?

is it efficient with more than 100 000 files in the directory ? if I well understand the code, each inode is loaded in memory... so do you know another mean to get this count, without need of a huge memory ?
