But wouldn't a scripting language be less efficient than C implementation?
I am not sure the time saved by traverse fewer files using pruning
will be greater than the time wasted in using a scripting language.
I'd like to know this beforehand before I create a custom
implementation in a scripting language.
Does anybody have any data on how slow it would be compared with
equivalent C implementation for directory traversal?
