http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am trying to use find . -type d -print | wc -m where -m or --chars would print the character counts of the folder names. Take following screen shot as example, the character count for tempFolder + tempFolder + dingdongFolder is only 34, and event counting the slashes and dots is still 40. Why the command print out 43 characters? Where are the 3 extra characters come from? (HowTos)
