This command uses
find to recursively print all files and directories under a given directory tree.
-printf option allows us to print the
%p path and
We print them in that order so that when we
sort, we sort on the path, and not the file size.
find . -printf "%p %s\n" | sort
This can be helpful if you run some sort of process against a directory, and want to see how the files change.
You can do something like this.
find . -printf "%p %s\n" | sort > /tmp/1.txt # Run some process. find . -printf "%p %s\n" | sort > /tmp/2.txt
That will allow you to then compare
git diff 1.txt 2.txt to see which files changed.
I tried implementations using
xargs, but this seems the simplest in my opinion.
