# This tiny script uses “ls”, “grep”, and “sed” #
# in a single command to show the nesting of #
# sub-directories. The setup command for PATH #
# works with the Bash shell (the Mac OS X default). #
# #
# Setup: #
# $ cd ~/apps/tree #
# $ chmod u+x tree.sh #
# $ ln -s ~/apps/tree/tree.sh ~/bin/tree #
# $ echo “PATH=~/bin:${PATH}” >> ~/.profile #
# #
# Usage: #
# $ tree [directory] #
# #
# Examples: #
# $ tree #
# $ tree /etc/opt #
# $ tree .. #

# 1st sed: remove colons
# 2nd sed: replace higher level folder names with dashes
# 3rd sed: indent graph three spaces
# 4th sed: replace first dash with a vertical bar
if [ `ls -F -1 | grep “/” | wc -l` = 0 ] # check if no folders
then echo ” -> no sub-directories”
