tree - list contents of directories in a tree-like format.
tree [-adfghilnopqrstuvxACDFNS] [-L level [-R]] [-H baseHREF] [-T title] [-o
filename] [--nolinks] [-P pattern] [-I pattern] [--inodes] [--device] [--noreport]
[--dirsfirst] [--version] [--help] [--filelimit #] [directory ...]
Tree is a recursive directory listing program that produces a depth indented listing of files. Color is supported ala dircolors if the
LS_COLORS environment variable is set, output is to a tty, and the -C flag is used. With no arguments, tree lists the files in the current
directory. When directory arguments are given, tree lists all the files and/or directories found in the given directories each in turn. Upon completion
of listing 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 symbolic link refers to is printed after the name of the link in the format:
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.
