list all contains and subdirectories' contains

Hi all, I am using the command
ls * > list
to output the contains of a directory in a file.
The problem is that ls * command lists the contains of only the first subdir , and doesn't display the contains of deeper subdirs.What's the syntax to have *everything* listed even if it is 20 subdirs deep ?

tnx , babis

ls -R I guess ...

man ls :

-R, --recursive
List the contents of all directories recursively.
