Konqueror saves file .directory in every directory

Konqueror saves file called ".directory" in every directory where I change 
some view properties of this directory, e.g. when clicking the "Detailed 
view" icon. I can see this behaviour on only one my machine/account with 
KDE, while it is working fine elsewhere. How can I disable this nasty file 
creation?

BTW, someone knows how to use a web search engine (google, yahoo, ...) to 
search for ".directory"? They always strip the leading "." and thus giving 
out millions of useless results.

Thanks, P.M.

Don't change any nasty properties and you won't create this nasty file.

Did you mean to ask, "Does someone know how to use a web search engine?"

The answer is... yes, someone does.  It's just not you.

For instance, I would never start a search for "dumb questions about my
operating system GUI" with the lone term "dumb".

In Konqueror go to "Settings" and disable "View Properties Saved in
Folder".

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...

Getting all directories/files from current directory and using -d flag for the directories
Hi guys/gals, I'm pretty new to Perl, so please keep that in mind. :) It looks like File::Find goes through all the subdirectories of the current directory, which isn't what I want. I just want all the contents of the current directory. On doing some research, many people have recommended doing something like the following: ----------- $home_dir = ''; #changed to protect the innocent :) opendir(DIR,$home_dir) or die "Can't open the current directory: $home_dir $!\n"; # read file/directory names in that directory into @names @names = readdir(DIR) or die "...

Delete a directory and all its files and sub-directories?
Hi, Does anyone know of, or have code that will delete a php directory and all its sub directories and files. "unlink" and "rmdir" don't do this.

Undefined error #612

Combining those two things with my long experience at pondering error messages -- I wonder whether SPSS could be totally screwed up at this stage, so that the next line about "Predicted values ... weights" may have little to do with anythi...
