TREE(1) General Commands Manual TREE(1) NAME tree - list contents of directories in a tree-like format. SYNOPSIS tree [-adfghilnopqrstuvxACDFNS] [-L level [-R]] [-H baseHREF] [-T title] [-o filename] [--nolinks] [-P pattern] [-I pattern] [--inodes] [--device] [--noreport] [--dirsfirst] [--version] [--help] [--filelimit #] [directory ...] DESCRIPTION Tree is a recursive directory listing program that produces a depth indented listing of files, which is colorized ala dircolors if the LS_COLORS environment variable is set and output is to tty. With no arguments, tree lists the files in the current directory. When direc- tory arguments are given, tree lists all the files and/or directories found in the given directories each in turn. Upon completion of list- ing all files/directories found, tree returns the total number of files and/or directories listed. By default, when a symbolic link is encountered, the path that the sym- bolic link refers to is printed after the name of the link in the for- mat: name -> real-path If the `-l' option is given and the symbolic link refers to an actual directory, then tree will follow the path of the symbolic link as if it were a real directory. OPTIONS Tree understands the following command line switches: --help Outputs a verbose usage listing. --version Outputs the version of tree. -a All files are printed. By default tree does not print hidden files (those beginning with a dot `.'). In no event does tree print the file system constructs `.' (current directory) and `..' (previous directory). -d List directories only. -f Prints the full path prefix for each file. -i Makes tree not print the indentation lines, useful when used in conjunction with the -f option. -l Follows symbolic links if they point to directories, as if they were directories. Symbolic links that will result in recursion are avoided when detected. -x Stay on the current file-system only. Ala find -xdev. -P pattern List only those files that match the wild-card pattern. Note: you must use the -a option to also consider those files begin- ning with a dot `.' for matching. Valid wildcard operators are `*' (any zero or more characters), `?' (any single character), `[...]' (any single character listed between brackets (optional - (dash) for character range may be used: ex: [A-Z]), and `[^...]' (any single character not listed in brackets) and `|' separates alternate patterns. -I pattern Do not list those files that match the wild-card pattern. --noreport Omits printing of the file and directory report at the end of the tree listing. -p Print the file type and permissions for each file (as per ls -l). -s Print the size of each file in bytes along with the name. -h Print the size of each file but in a more human readable way, e.g. appending a size letter for kilobytes (K), megabytes (M), gigabytes (G), terrabytes (T), petabytes (P) and exabytes (E). -u Print the username, or UID # if no username is available, of the file. -g Print the group name, or GID # if no group name is available, of the file. -D Print the date of the last modification time for the file listed. --inodes Prints the inode number of the file or directory --device Prints the device number to which the file or directory belongs -F Append a `/' for directories, a `=' for socket files, a `*' for executable files and a `|' for FIFO's, as per ls -F -q Print non-printable characters in filenames as question marks instead of the default caret notation. -N Print non-printable characters as is instead of the default car- rot notation. -v Sort the output by version. -r Sort the output in reverse alphabetic order. -t Sort the output by last modification time instead of alphabeti- cally. --dirsfirst List directories before files. -n Turn colorization off always, over-ridden by the -C option. -C Turn colorization on always, using built-in color defaults if the LS_COLORS environment variable is not set. Useful to col- orize output to a pipe. -A Turn on ANSI line graphics hack when printing the indentation lines. -S Turn on ASCII line graphics (useful when using linux console mode fonts). This option is now equivalent to `--charset=IBM437' and will eventually be depreciated. -L level Max display depth of the directory tree. --filelimit # Do not descend directories that contain more than # entries. -R Recursively cross down the tree each level directories (see -L option), and at each of them execute tree again adding `-o 00Tree.html' as a new option. -H baseHREF Turn on HTML output, including HTTP references. Useful for ftp sites. baseHREF gives the base ftp location when using HTML output. That is, the local directory may be `/local/ftp/pub', but it must be referenced as `ftp://hostname.organiza- tion.domain/pub' (baseHREF should be `ftp://hostname.organiza- tion.domain'). Hint: don't use ANSI lines with this option, and don't give more than one directory in the directory list. If you wish to use colors via CCS stylesheet, use the -C option in addition to this option to force color output. -T title Sets the title and H1 header string in HTML output mode. --charset charset Set the character set to use when outputting HTML and for line drawing. --nolinks Turns off hyperlinks in HTML output. -o filename Send output to filename. FILES /etc/DIR_COLORS System color database. ~/.dircolors Users color database. ENVIRONMENT LS_COLORS Color information created by dircolors TREE_CHARSET Character set for tree to use in HTML mode. LC_CTYPE Locale for filename output.

Tree prints directories as it comes to them, so cannot accumu- late information on files and directories beneath the directory it is printing. The -h option rounds to the nearest whole number unlike the ls imple- mentation of -h which rounds up always. The IEC standard names for powers of 2 cooresponding to metric powers of 10 (KiBi, et al.) are silly. Pruning files and directories with the -I, -P and --filelimit options will lead to incorrect file/directory count reports. Probably more.
