Directories with maximum number of files

Lot of times, I want to find the directories with maximum number of files and so I wrote this quick function to do exactly the same

 

function count_lines ()
{
    oldIFS=$IFS
    count=0
    IFS=$'\n'
    dir=${1:-.}
    cd $dir
    find . -type d |while read line
    do
        echo -n "$(find $line -type f |wc -l) $line"
        echo 
        printf "Directories :: %8d\r" $count >&2
        ((count++))
    done|sort -n
    IFS=$oldIFS
}   # ----------  end of function count_lines  ----------

So other day I was checking why my play key was not working and wanted to check if it maps to one of the X default mappings for the keyboard and was stuck on how to check this. And finally found that I can try this:

 

xev -event keyboard

Pretty neat 🙂
