comparing file sizes from files in a directory

Hello all!

I need some help with this function I was trying to make but came up
futile in. Basically I have this folder called 'original' and another
one called 'new'. In these folders there are .NIF files. Both folders
have the same subdirectory folder and file structure. So if there is
an "original/black/dot.nif" then there will be a "new/black/dot.nif".
The only difference between the two dot.nif files are that they may
not be the same file size. I'm trying to create a function that will
compare the dot.nif from the original folder with the dot.nif from the
new folder and delete the larger dot.nif (thus keeping the smaller one
wherever it may be). I would really appreciate some help.

Basically I tried listing the files into an array for each of the two
top folders (original and new) while trying to exclude subfolders. And
then I was going to run it through a loop to determine which of the
two files from the two arrays were larger/smaller.

compare file size with online file size
hi! Im trying to make something that compares 2 files. One of the files is on the users computer.... The other is on a website! Obviously what Im trying to do is compare the lastModified date, in order to update the file on the users computer if neccessary. Only problem is that I dont know how I can get the size of the file online without downloading it first... Any ideas? Would the HTTP "Content-length" header line help you? Some servers don't send that so sometime you wouldn't know ahead of time. But in general you can use the urllib module and then the info() metho...

files, directories, files, directories
Hi folks, I've been trying to make a decision and it's driving me crazy. Is a directory a file or is a directory NOT a file but a node? Should I have A) public interface IFile { IFileName FileName; IContent GetContent(); } public interface IDirectory extends IFile { } or B) public interface INode { INodeName NodeName; } public interface IFile extends INode { IContent GetContent(); } public interface IDirectory extends INode { } Method A is nice cause IFile becomes the base "Node" type and you can use names like "IFileName" which sounds nice compared to "INodeName" and fits with the "FileSystem" moniker. A has the disadvantage that IDirectory has a GetContent() method which isn't bad but can be considered a bit weird. It probably wouldn't be too hard to make users think of everything as a file. Method B is nice cause IDirectory doesn't have GetContent() -- that honour belongs only to IFile. B is at a disadvantage when it comes to naming: everything becomes a "Node". INodeName sounds rude compared to IFileName. This method feels more "pure" cause you're specialising features completely. Do you reckon I can get away with Method A? It doesn't seem as pure unless you spend a long time convincing yourself that (for all intents and purposes) a file *is* a node (it's just got a different name) and a directory *is* a file. A penny for anyone's thought...

Matt Matt Stevens wrote: > How can I *.tar.gz a whole directory tree (say \home\myname\) but all files inside which are > greater than 30 MB should not be included ? Use "find -size" to generate a list of files less than a specific size. "man find" for more info. Then use "tar -T" to tar the files. "man tar" for more info. You might even be able to pipe them together (- for -T), although I've never tried....

Solution to synchronize 300,000 files over FTP without file by file comparing?
Need help to effectively synchronize 3 machines (XP pro, 2000 pro and 98SE) with 3 different FTP Servers (Titan, Raiden and Serv U) Each machines has about 15 Gigabytes in total of 300,000 15k to 900k TIFF files spanning 15 levels of 6000 folders. Servers are connected by broadband, upload transfer rate is 640K on 2 Servers and 4000K on 1 server. 100 to 200 new files are added in each server daily and not much files are modified (10 to 30 in total maybe) We are using WS_ftp synchronize utility performing Server A to B sync (3 hours) then A to C sync (3 hours) and A to B again (3 hours) to make the files identical. That is a full day job. And most of the time is used for scanning and comparing files. We can't schedule the job because the synchronization halt from time to time. We need to reboot the FTP server or the client and start the task again. I doubt it is caused by the large number of files with small size, we tried to synchronize 4 DVD movies between 3 servers and the whole process finished in half the time needed and never halt. Recently the synchronization is getting slower and those non technical staffs (those who created 6000 folders) are complaining. I have tried Availl replicate from Availl.com, but it doesn't seem to operate well for such a large number of files. tried Syncback from 2brightsparks, replicate locally is great, but across ftp doesn't get the job done. tried remote control each server and backup newly added files but the...

File size vs. Directory size problem
Hi all, Got a bit of a problem I dont know how to go about. Basically my script takes 2 different directories, puts each file/sub directory into an array for each, sorts the array, compares them, and then spits out what is missing from each directory. Im really happy with this as it is my first real ruby script and it works a charm. Now I was wanting to add to it. Basically I want to take the size of each file and see if they are greater than 0, and if it is 0 then output the file. My problem is that a directory is returned as being of size 0. Obviously I dont care about the directory size i...

workspace file size v.s. stored JPEG file size
I'm having some difficulty understanding why there is a difference in file size between an image in my workspace, the same image when I write it as a JPEG using imwrite(), and the re-read image back into my workspace. I know JPEG can be used a lossy format, which makes sense why the file size would be less, but my question is less about the whole lossy/lossless mode discrepancy and more about why I get two different values for the same file. Let me illustrate this with a brief example: %Make a 128x128 "image" - 16384 bytes img = uint8(randi(128,128)); whos img %Write the...

Probably to avoid short tags scripts (on a server that doesn't allow them) from getting leaked by visitors who don't know about this browser trick, until the dev' realizes his error. Not a good thing, IMO; dev's should take care, themselves, and it's still not secure since the hidden string is still in the rendered source. And now we don't know how ...

Open .php file with PHP Designer 2007 by clicking the file in XP
In windows XP, I want to be able to click on a .php file and have it opened in PHP Designer 2007, Or right-click on it and have an "edit" menu option presented to me. I know how to tweak the registry to do this in general, but what would the command line look like in this specific case ? PHP Designer does not do this automatically.

Iteration through File.file? misses entries for which File.file?(entry) == true
Hello everyone, I'm new to Ruby, so I'm most likely making an elementary mistake. However, searching Google didn't help me find my answer, and after mucking around with irb I still haven't figured it out. I wrote a method that was intended to take all of the files in a given directory and put them into an array. Here's the code I wrote: def getFiles(dir) pwdFiles = Array.new Dir.foreach(dir) do |entry| pwdFiles.push(entry) if File.file?(entry) == true end end This works fine when called on the working directory --- that is, getFile...

Testing file size and file exist?
I want to perform a couple of statements if either the file does not exist OR the file size of a given file is equal 0. Currently the best solution I can imagine is something like: if [! -e myfile.dat ]; then echo "File not existing or file size = 0" do_something else filesize=`wc -c myfile.dat` echo "filesize=$filesize" if [ $filesize = 0 ]; then echo "File not existing or file size = 0" do_something fi fi The first problem I encounter is that the back ticks are NOT recognized by the shell interpreter. filesize contains blank af...

File.size? incorrect for big files?
Hi, I've written a script to monitor some files stored on our network. The files range from a few hundred MB to 20-50g. Above a certain point which I haven't really narrowed down yet, the file sizes start being reported incorrectly from my script. It's as if the routine that does the system query is using a 32 bit thing for the size and it's getting truncated as integers do. Some files actually come back with a negative size. The data type that ruby is using is perfectly capable of holding the size of the files. I've tried File.size? and FileUtils.size?, so I'm so...

File Permissions of PHP Session Files

Does anyone have any idea where this permission is set ? I can't find any umask or chmod settings for it in the php.ini file. Can't find anything in the httpd.conf either. Is it set in the PHP code that implements session_start()?

I'm writing a script to upload images along with articles to a directory on the server. I'm developing it offline on my WinXP and Apache 1.3.x laptop and it's working great, but when I move the script to the server, I get write errors when the file attempts to upload. So I set up a test script (included below) to test the directory structures all the way up to the file, and every directory appears to be writable, yet I can't write to the test file. I keep seeing suggestions to set the open_basedir directive in the php.ini file to solve this, but it's hasn't worked ye...
