Command: tree / pdtree
TREE / PDTREE graphically displays the directory [folder] structure
of a given drive or path. It optionally includes a filelist in
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
/? 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
