Default How-To get a directory count

Hello everybody!

I did a search and finally found out how to get the file count in various ways with-in a direcory. These works very well on FreeBSD current-9.0:

Code:
 ls | wc -l  #  count files and one for each directories in the current (target) directory.

find /target/directory -type f -print | wc -l    # count all files in all directories, but exclude directories count

find /target/directory -maxdepth 1 -type f -print | wc -    #  all files, in given directory only.
... but I found nothing about how-to get a count of directories only with-in a directory.

My questions is:

1) How do we get the count of all directories only with-in a directory.

2) and than how to get a list of all directory names with-in a given directory.

Thanks in advance

I will give you a hint. grep(1) can be your friend.
Code:
$ ls -l | grep ^d

I think I just wasted two semesters trying to get to know C++, boost, etc. When those forums give you a hint your on your own for any other week/month/years, with-out a clue writing a full-blown program for what these one-liners already did/done/case-close ...

There are no directories in /rescue but both will output [1] *OR* always output one extra to a count if called with-in a directory or sub-directory. It add a count of one for itself. I can live with that

Code:
find /rescue -type d -print | wc -l
Code:
find /rescue/ -type d -print | wc -l

If you call this a hint what could possibly works better? Or is it the new FreeBSD current?

Code:
$ ls -l | grep ^d
From with-in any directory it gave me as root a complete/exact list of all directories in a partition or directory ... WoW!

Thanks guys
