Thank you for replying! You raised me a couple of other questions 1) Is there a chance for implementation in C++? I know python is a good idea for sure, but I found that C standalone doesn't have the functions to gather the file metadata required for this project from directories (Please correct me if I'm wrong). Plus, I'm inexperienced with python, while C++17 gives more options or even Boost. 2) Should I expect to implement all the hash calculations? That's all for now, thank you again for taking the time, Nasiotis Konstantinos Στις Δευ, 12 Μαρ 2018, 22:57 ο χρήστης Alexios Zavras <zvr+eellak [ at ] zvr [ dot ] gr> έγραψε: > Κωνσταντίνος Νασιώτης wrote [edited]: > > I'm interested in the FilesDB project and I have some questions about it. > > thank you for your interest and the concrete questions! > > > > 1) Is it expected to run on a Unix-like environment? > > Unix-like environments are definitely the primary target, > but there is nothing stopping it being run in other environments, as well. > > > > 2) What should be expected from the st|stats command? > > nice question... without a definite answer for the time being. > I could imagine the statistics being produced to be > something like: total number of entries, total size, > largest entry, median size, max depth in directories, ... > > we're always open to ideas! > > > > 3) The input will only consist of directories?
