DIR /S ... grand total?

On my system drive, "z:\> dir /s /nj" reports

Code:
Total for:  Z:\*
20,973,404,937 bytes in 113,271 files and 54,697 dirs
54,697 DIRECTORIES!!!!!

I get this result with an external WC.EXE or my LC plugin.

Code:
z:\> global /h /i /q /n echo %_cwd | wc
  Lines   Words   Chars
  18519   24220 1684844

z:\> global /h /i /q /n echo %_cwd | lc
18519
I also get this result (which seems a bit more like it).

Code:
z:\> dir /s /nj | grep Total | wc
  Lines   Words   Chars
  18395   60830 2006508

It would seem that grand total for DIR /S is a little off.

Try adding a /H to avoid having "." and ".." counted, that might get you
closed to reality.

I thought TCC did not emulate the really dumb things that CMD does.
I doubt anyone would ever want "." and ".." to be included in the count.

I can't even imagine the point of listing . and .. today at all in the
UI or anywhere else, although I'm sure that there are people that rely
on them.

(I'm not suggesting the underlying functionality disappear, there are
times where having a quick "here" or "up there" reference is useful,
just that they don't really add anything to directory listings)
