A follow on from this question: I simply would like a listing of longest to shortest (or vice versa!) tractates in Yerushalmi by daf, ideally listing the number of daf/tractate.

    What printing? Why would you want to document this arbitrary metric? – Double AA Jul 22 at 11:17

    That doesn't answer my question. Use word count if you want to find that out. – Double AA Jul 22 at 11:25

    @DoubleAA it's not complete nonsense. number of pages ~ (number of words) + (font size ratio) * (number of words in nosei keilim), which could be a metric for length weighted by complexity. – Heshy Jul 22 at 11:53

    @JoshuaPearl This post would be more compelling if you'd edit in some details about why you're interested in this information. – Isaac Moses Jul 22 at 17:35
