I don't think there's really a limit on the number of files; I quite easily created 90k files in a directory with a shell script. The number of subdirectories in one directory is 32766, since the link count for a directory is stored as a signed 16-bit integer, and the parent directory will end up with 32767 links (one for itself, and 32766 to .. in each child directory). This is also trivial to verify with a shell script. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
