How do I get a list of all directories and files with absolute paths each line?
ls -R /,
i get every file and directory listed that exists, but not with the full file path.
What do I need to write on the command line in order to get a list in such a format, that every line contains an absolute path.
You can get the files with full path with this command:
find / -type f
or list files from the current directory down:
find $(pwd) -type f
There are two commands you can use along with
ls if you intend just for the files in a particular directory.
I can’t show you
realpath output as i don’t have it in my system.
You can make
readlink to do that for you.
ls | xargs -n 1 readlink -f
WARNING: you may not get the abs path for the soft links as that will be converted to the files which are the linked to.
