Count the number of files and directories in web-root

The code below loops through the contents of the web-root folder and counts the number of files and the number of directories it contains. For the example, assume that the directory contains the following contents: 'css/', 'img/', 'index.lasso', 'js/', and 'test.lasso'


local(web_root)  = dir('/')
local(num_files) = 0
local(num_dirs)  = 0
with d in #web_root->each
do {
    #d->type == 'file' ? #num_files += 1 | #num_dirs += 1
'Number of Files: ' + #num_files
'Number of Folders: ' + #num_dirs


Number of Files: 2
Number of Folders: 3
