Looking for a few program's.


Made the big leap, and totally removed windows after a year of dual booting. I still consider myself a newbie, because you dont learn much when you always have a window's partition to boot to when there's a problem. I have been full linux for a month now, and love it!! I have had some problem's, but have gotten them solved by reading. I hope this is not in the wrong topic. I put it in software because it's what i am requesting. It's not a problem at all. Anyway's, thanks to anyone that can help me. The Command line question is most likely a stupid one. I can sort them, head them, i just cant figure out how to get all level's.


PRINTING OUT DIRECTORY'S
With window's i had this program that i used for printing out directory's. Doing some reading i learned to do this with linux command line, but need it to go all the way to the bottom level.

[budman@localhost ~]$ ls > Home_home.txt
[budman@localhost ~]$

Give's me a txt file containing this.
bookmarks 10-25-05.html
Desktop/
Downloads/
Home_home.txt
passes
tmp/

I want it to print out all of the directory's content's, and folder's within' all levels. What switch am i missing?

MASS DOWNLOADER
I used to use express webpicture's for downloading images from the web. I was wondering if linux has a simular program. Downthemall for firefox works on some, but no good for getting a website full of images. I have read some on "Wget", and need to know if that will do it? If so i will learn it. Otherwise are there any program's that do this?

FILE SHARING
I used to use ARES Galaxy which is open source, and i was very suprised when i couldn't find a linux version of this program. WHY? Looking for a good filesharing program also.

The ls switch you're looking for is probably '-R' (note the capital). You may have to combine it with other options, or grep it a bit, depending on the output format you want.

As for filesharing, the onus tends to be on cross-network support. I don't use P2P much, but Apollon (KDE-based) is the one I go for when I do, and it seems to work just fine and dandy.

HTH,
Andrzej

as for the directory printout, you might want to use the "tree" command. try "tree --help" or "man tree" for options

Dtsazza,
Thanks everyone for the reply's! '-R' (note the capital) is exactly what i was looking for. I have studied that, and must have forgot the capital letter when typing it. I also did a "grep --help", and can see where that will come in handy when doing this. I will study that also. Have not tried the filesharing prog yet, but will give it a shot when i get time.

lluvatar,
I tried both tree command's you gave, and i get "command now found", and "No manual entry for tree". Possibly it's a different shell you are using, or a package you installed. Very novice to linux, but from what i have read that's all i can think of. Thank you much for you imput though. All help is appreciated!!

Nice to be of assistance! grep is a wonderfully powerful program, yet simple to use in its basic form. Just to give you a quick example of how it would be used - say you were in a directory with *loads* of files in it, and wanted to know the size of one of those files. You could use 'ls -l' to get details on the files, but that would require lots of scrolling up and down to find the exact file - which could be very difficult if the files had similar names (e.g. log files from different dates). If you instead pipe the output to grep, you can show only the lines that contain a particular string. For example,
Code:
ls -l | grep foo
would display only the lines with "foo" in them. Now there's nothing special about ls - grep accepts any text as input, so you can use it with just about any Linux command, and it's extremely useful with pipes, in the way we've used it here. When you get the time, check out a grep tutorial like this one; and bear in mind that grep actually works with things called Regular Expressions (regexs for short), which can be very powerful once you master them. Regexes pop up in various places in Linux, so learning them will pay off many times over.

Happy Linuxing!
Andrzej

Dtsazza, i have been studying linuxcommand.org, and have learned alot. I cant believe the power of the command line. Not only what i learned from that site, but everything you have typed i have saved to a txt file for later reading. Big thanks to you my friend! I thank you much!!

That really means a lot to me, thank you. And likewise, it's great to see people who are prepared to invest a little of their own time into learning how things work, so that they may use them better.
