Oh man... didn't know about the 'show example output'...

Comment by ktoso 272 weeks and 6 days ago

Your filter for determining the number of i386 objects is flawed as it is line-counting extraneous lines containing statements that an object is a universal binary:

306 /System/Library/Extensions/smbfs.kext/Contents/MacOS/smbfs: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures

which means your i386 count is off by more than 50%!

Correcting the filter to only count the "Mach-O object i386" entries:

file /System/Library/Extensions/*.kext/Contents/MacOS/* |grep -i "mach-o object i386" |nl | tail -1 | cut -f1 -f3

yields the much more expected value:

140 Mach-O object i386
