in a directory that has 5 files, the output of my rulerformat shows 6 files.

It counts the "move to current directory" (the arrow on the first line) as the first file.

Is there a way to have the output not count the move to parent directory in the file count?

Thank you :=)

if the entry is there, it's always counted, but if you don't need it, you can use 'dotdirs' option to get rid of it:

set dotdirs=

Then it will appear only in empty directories.


thank you, works great :)
