FreeDOS help system (hhstndrd 1.0.8 en)[pdtree]

Command: tree / pdtree

TREE / PDTREE graphically displays the directory [folder] structure of a given drive or path. It optionally includes a filelist in the display.


TREE [d:][path] [/F] [/A] [/?] PDTREE [d:][path] [/F] [/A] [/V] [/S][/P] [/?] d:path The drive and path to start from. If no path is given, tree/pdtree will start from the current directory.


/F Display the names of files in each directory. /A Use ASCII characters to visually represent the directory structure. /? Display help and exit. Additional Options in FreeDOS pdTree: (Not available in standard Tree.) /V Display version information and exit. /S Shortnames only (uses short, ie alternate, filename when exists). DOS version only, disables use of LFN API for find first/next. /P Pause after each page. (Note: presently defaults to 80x25 screen) Win32 version only, ignores pause option if output is redirected to file or piped to another program, such as tree | more; also attempts to use current console size (TODO for DOS version).


PDTREE supports NLS (national language support).


To display the complete directory hierarchy of drive C and pause after each screenful, run tree specifying C: as the start path and pipe its output to the MORE command: tree C:\ | more When using pdTree, the above example may also be achieved using: pdtree C:\ /p To display the directory hierarchy of a subdirectory and have the output only use standard ASCII characters (such as for printing or sending to someone who may view it without DOS line/box drawing character support), specify the subdirectory and the /A switch: tree ASUBDIR /a To display the structure of a directory tree and the files within each directory, add the /F switch: tree ASUBDIR /f | more
