command to display one screenful


Can anyone tell me what the bash2 command is for displaying one screenful of files/dirs ( the dos comand is dir /p )

also how do i display just the names of the subdirs without all the files in these subdirs ?

I do not know what is in the dir to start with and want to view the dirs in it. Like for instance the tree structure of linux

thankyou for any comments ....


joe

ps read the book but still none the wiser on this score .
also read man ,help ,info etc but cannot find this command

the bash command is 'more' or 'less' . just pipe the output to these commands.

to display only directories you can use 'find' with -d option.

'man find' for more options

less if a better option than more

Sample:

ls -al /usr/bin | less
