I wanted to sum the total lines of code in files in a given folder. I thought that writing my own program to do this would be faster than looking for it on the internet, so here's what I came up with
  • 6
  • 5
  • 1932

Spoiler: here's the one line of code.

using System;
using System.Linq;
using System.IO;

class Program
static void Main(string[] args)
Environment.CurrentDirectory, "*",
string.Join(" ", args).Contains("/s")
? SearchOption.AllDirectories : SearchOption.TopDirectoryOnly)
.Select(f => File.ReadAllLines(f).Length)

Here's mine:

find . -name "*" | xargs wc

Throw a tail in there if you only want the sum, a -l if you only want the lines.

Apparently somebody already thought of that.

Your code should be:
find . -name "*" -type f | xargs wc

Plus you need to take into account the "recursive" /s parameter (in your case to ignore it). I've just posted my approach in groovy on dzone regarding this issue.

Ah, good point--I missed that when scanning the one line. Thank goodness for -maxdepth :D
