Is there a built-in function to get the size of a folder?

I saw that there are stat and filesize, but I don’t see a recursive option.

Is there a small package or another function that can give me the cumulative size of all files in a folder?

Another thing I am not sure about is if stat works on windows?

I tried the code below and I think it works now.

using Logging
function totalsize(dirpath)
	total = 0
	for (root,dir,files) in walkdir(dirpath)
		total += filesize(root)
		@info filesize(root) root
		for f in files
			file = joinpath(root,f)
			size = filesize(file)
			total += size
			@info size file
		end
		print(" "^80,"\r")
		print(total," B","\r")
	end
end

Yeah that was a stupid mistake. Thanks

Here is a version that is less noisy.
Is it bad practice to add methods to Base?

function Base.filesize(dirpath::String, recursive::Bool)
	if !recursive
		return filesize(dirpath)
	else
		total = 0
		for (root,dirs,files) in walkdir(dirpath)
			total += filesize(root)
			for f in files
				file = joinpath(root,f)
				size = filesize(file)
				total += size
			end
		end
		return total
	end
end

Example:

julia> map((x)->basename(x)=>filesize(x,true),
           readdir(joinpath(homedir(), ".julia"), join=true))
