Re: list of all files in Unix

Hi,


Yes, it is possible. you can get this by doing this command

#ls -lR|more

it will full fill answer of your question and if you want all these file output record in a file, you can do:

#ls -lR > /systemfile

ls -lR *.4ge

would probably work more closely to what you desired.

HI,


As per Pete,
#ls -lR *.4ge

it will give you probabaly what you want! but you execute this command on "/" directory.

What's a "4ge file"?

Really? Have you tried that? Does it see
any "*.4ge" files in a subdirectory? Around
here, for example, looking for "*.c":

dyi # ls -lR
total 16
-rw-r--r-- 1 root sys 476 Feb 15 2010 junk.c
drwxr-xr-x 2 root sys 96 Aug 16 21:39 subdir

./subdir:
total 16
-rw-r--r-- 1 root sys 476 Feb 15 2010 junk2.c

But:

dyi # ls -lR *.c
-rw-r--r-- 1 root sys 476 Feb 15 2010 junk.c
dyi #

Perhaps more useful:

dyi # find . -name '*.c' -exec ls -l {} \;
-rw-r--r-- 1 root sys 476 Feb 15 2010 ./junk.c
-rw-r--r-- 1 root sys 476 Feb 15 2010 ./subdir/junk2.c


Note that here "*.c" is quoted to keep the
shell from expanding the wildcard file name.


Of course, on an OS with a different design,
this sort of thing can be easier:

alp $ dire /date /size [.test...]*.txt

Directory ALP$DKA0:[SMS.TEST]

FRED.TXT;1 1596 22-DEC-2007 00:09:21.02

Total of 1 file, 1596 blocks.

Directory ALP$DKA0:[SMS.TEST.B]

BB.TXT;1 1 1-MAY-2008 14:57:25.77

Total of 1 file, 1 block.

Directory ALP$DKA0:[SMS.TEST.C]

CC.TXT;1 1 1-MAY-2008 14:57:33.66

Total of 1 file, 1 block.

Grand total of 3 directories, 3 files, 1598 blocks.

But that's VMS DCL, not a UNIX shell.
