List files with absolute path recursive in linux

Let’s see how we can list all files of a directory recursive in linux.

First of all install tree command tool. For Ubuntu users just issue the following command:

sudo apt-get install tree

List all files recursive:

tree -if /path/to/directory/

explaining:
-i Don’t print indentation lines.
-f Print the full path prefix for each file.

List all files recursive and save the list into a file:

tree -if /path/to/directory/ > allfiles.txt
