Recursively print folder contents via the Terminal
Authored by: randalla on Feb 13, '04 11:15:51AM

If you think that's fun, you should check out mkbom and lsbom in the man pages. Those are the tools to create the .pkg files Apple uses for it's installers. You can create a list that stores all information, such as owner, group, file permissions, dates, checksum, etc. It's pretty simple to make one:

mkbom ~user /user.bom

and to read it:

lsbom /user.bom

There's a lot of options you can use with it. Enjoy.
