    From en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Files-11, the main filesystem for OpenVMS. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Files11_directory_hierarchy.svg shows an example of directories in a filesystem which is organised in a directed acyclic graph (DAG) structure. Rather than inodes, files on a Files-11 disk (or volume set) have a unique file identification (FID) which indexes into the INDEXF.SYS file where metadata for the file is located.

    find $(pwd) -maxdepth 1 is it. Other than someone putting an 'ls' tag on the question I do not know why that has gotten so much attention.

    @vonbrand, Normally one does not reference a device in file name but one can and yes, in that case, the syntax is different than on Linux systems but the question is not about the file naming conventions. Someone changed the tag on the question to be 'ls' but that was an error. The question is not specifying specific Linux commands. Initially in 1977 on 32-bit VAX hardware there was an 8 level limit on directories. OpenVMS on Alpha and I64 64-bit hardware there is no limit on the number of directory levels.
