( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Here is my test prog :-
use strict; use File::Find; my $dir = shift; my ($with, $without); print "Counting files in $dir\n"; # This is the default on Linux $File::Find::dont_use_nlink = 0; find(sub { $without++ }, $dir); $File::Find::dont_use_nlink = 1; find(sub { $with++ }, $dir); print "With \$File::Find::dont_use_nlink = 0: $without files found\n"; print "With \$File::Find::dont_use_nlink = 1: $with files found\n";
I ran this on a mounted iso9660 disc like this (note if the disc has RockRidge extensions then it works properly!) :-
$ ./ /mnt/cdrom 
Counting files in /mnt/cdrom
With $File::Find::dont_use_nlink = 0: 29 files found
With $File::Find::dont_use_nlink = 1: 1300 files found
This was on Linux 2.2.17 with perl 5.00503 with the standard File::Find that comes with the distribution

I agree with tye's comment here - $File::Find::dont_use_nlink should be 1 on all platforms - the slowdown isn't worth the incompatibilities.

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.
