Display a tree-like structural view of any directory
Authored by: aalegado on Feb 15, '06 01:24:32PM

That works fine if:

1. You only have one window worth of items to list, and,
2. You don't need the actual text of the item list.

The idea behind a utility like 'tree' or the ls/sed pipe in the original hint is that you can get a text-file of the item list.

While I would probably go with the CLI option too, if you open a Finder window you can select any files in the hierarchy, copy, and then paste the list into a text editor. However, it does seem to have problems with nested files. YMMV.
