How to list files in subdirectrories with relative path?


I'd like to list files of a directory and its subdirectories with full paths. The output should look like this example:

Code:
me.jpg
pictures/01.jpeg
pictures/02.jpeg
pictures/03.jpeg
pictures/holdiday/01.jpg
pictures/holdiday/02.jpg
pictures/christmas/2001/02.jpg
pictures/christmas/2002/02.jpg
pictures/christmas/2003/02.jpg
I know about
Code:
$ ls */**
but that only shows files in the first subdirectory with relative path.

Is there another possibility?

$ ls -R

You could have found this by looking at the man page

$ man ls

or by entering the "help" option with the ls command

$ ls --help

Code:
$ find | cut -c3-
If you don't mind the leading "./" on pathnames in the output, then just plain old "find" will do.

Should work, I cannot confirm for GNU ls as atm have access only to BSD ls.

This doesn't give the output format that was requested.
