Tree

Graphically displays the directory structure of a path or of the disk in a drive.

Syntax

tree [Drive:][Path] [/f] [/a]

Parameters

Drive :   : Specifies the drive that contains the disk for which you want to display the directory structure.

Path   : Specifies the directory for which you want to display the directory structure.

/f   : Displays the names of the files in each directory.

/a   : Specifies that tree is to use text characters instead of graphic characters to show the lines linking subdirectories.

/?   : Displays help at the command prompt.

Remarks

  • The structure displayed by tree depends upon the parameters you specify on the command line. If you do not specify a drive or path, tree displays the tree structure beginning with the current directory of the current drive.

Examples

To display the names of all the subdirectories on the disk in your current drive, type:

tree \

To display, one screen at a time, the files in all the directories on drive C, type:

tree c:\ /f | more

To print the same list that the previous example displayed, type:

tree c:\ /f prn
