  • How to find the size of a file or folder

    How can I find the size of a file or folder?
    I am trying to determine the size of my iPhoto and Mail folder.
    It says "Size: --" under general from Get Info.

    It's working fine...
    When you ask for that info, and Finder presents those '--' dashes instead of a value, actually, Finder is calculating the value in background.
    That's something that i recently noticed and wonder why tha heck he needs to do all that work by himself, kinda re-inventing the wheel of file size value "calculus"...
    I posted some thoughts about it here: File / Folder size... How do Finder gets it?
    Will appreciate feedback about this!

  • How to find the contents of a file that is suddenly empty

    I created a folder 2 months ago on the left hand side of the email under TRASH and then Under 2013. I have been loading it with emails (maybe 20-30 at last count) and all of a sudden the contents of the folder is gone. Once, when I clicked on it, it came back and I thought it was here to stay, but then everything in it disappeared again and I have not been able to find the contents for several days now. It is not in TRASH or 2013 - can't locate the emails anywhere. Just before this happened, it was no longer accepting emails from my inbox when I tried to transfer them over. I figured it had run out of space, and was ready to open a new file, but there is nothing there either. Any ideas?

    If you logon to webmail account via a browser, can you see the missing folders and emails?

  • How to find the main java class file

    I need to write a Java program which MUST know one of these:
    1) the full path to the main java class (the class with "main" method)
    2) access to the main class as byte array.
    If i know (1) then I have no problems reading the main class into byte array, but the main target is still (2).
    Another option is if the main file is in JAR, which again leads to problems, because I cannot access the file in normal way, but I still need access to the exact byte stream.
    Any help is highly appreciated! Thanks!
    <<< Ivan Davidov >>>

    You could try somthing like this in your main-method:
    InputStream is = getClass().getResourceAsStream(<"myModifiedPackageName/MyClass.class">);I don't know if this works though.
    Have a look at the API doc for this method.

    It depends on the file.

  • How to find the number of data items in a file written with ArryToFile function?

    I have written an array of number in 2 column groups to a file using the LabWindows/CVI function ArrayToFile...Now if I want to read the file with FileToArray Function then how do I know the number of items in the file. during the write time I know how many array items to write. but suppose I want the file to read at some later time then How to find the number of items in the file,So that I can read the exact number and present it. Thanks to all
    If you are young work to Learn, not to earn.
    Go to Solution.

    What about:
    OpenFile ( your file );
    cnt = 0;
    while ((br = ReadLine ( ... )) != -2) {
    if (br == -1) {
    // I/O error: handle it!
    CloseFile ( ... );
    There are some ways to improve performance of this code, but if you are not reading thousands of lines it's quite fast.
    After this part you can dimension the array to pass to FileToArray... unless you want to read it yourself since you already have it open!
    Proud to use LW/CVI from 3.1 on.

  • How to get the "encoding" of a XML file using JDOM

    As in XML file, <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> indicates the encoding of this file
    while using JDOM to parse a XML file, how can I get the encoding type?

    What my program do is to get the encoding of XML files and convert them to UTF-8 encoding files, while I need this "encoding" information of the original XML document thus I can convert...
    After reading specifications and JDOM docs, the truth turns to be disappointed, no function is provided to get this information in JDOM level 2(the current released one), while it's promissed that this function will be provided in JDOM level API....
    Thanx all for your help and attention!!!
