A python script to count the number of files in particular folder and print the number of files in return ?

+3 votes

I am trying to count the number of files in a folder with python script but not getting the appropriate script. In which I can change the path and can find out the count of other folder files.

It doesn't matter for me how long the script is but need the clear script and it would be better if you can explain it also.

def count_files(in_directory):
    joiner= (in_directory + os.path.sep).__add__
    return sum(
        for filename
        in map(joiner, os.listdir(in_directory))

>>> count_files("/home/ashok/")

I have about 500 search queries, and about 52000 files in which I have to find all matches for each of the 500 queries.

How should I approach this? Seems like the straightforward way to do it would be to loop through each of the files and go line by line comparing all the terms to the query, but this seems like it would take too long.

Can someone give me a suggestion as to how to minimize the search time?

Design an algorithm to accept a string from the user. Count and print the number of times each character occurs in the given string. Example –
input string = "malayalam"
Output must be –
m – 2
a – 4
l – 2
y - 1
