Ubuntu I can do a recursive search with a natural sort quite easily. A simple
ls -1Rv will list file names only in a natural sort with all sub directories. An example output would be:
.: test4 tmp2 tmp3 ./tmp2: test1 test2 ./tmp3: test3
It lists the current contents and then it traverses each directory. Everything is separated nicely.
-v option doesn't exist. When I didn't have sub directories I could do a
ls -1 | sort -n for a natural sort. However, now that I have sub directories the pipe into
sort -n doesn't work nicely. The
ls -1R | sort -n predictably sorts into one giant list. An example output would be:
./tmp2: ./tmp3: test1 test2 test3 test4 tmp2 tmp3
Instead of each sub directory separated in its own list, we have one giant list. Is there anyway to duplicate the
ls functionality from
FreeBSD where I can get
FreeBSD to list out and sort each list separately?
My searching has found topics like this, but they all use the pipe method and don't seem to talk on what happens with sub directories. I've also read the FreeBSD ls manual, but it does not mention having a natural sort. I didn't see anything helpful in the FreeBSD sort manual either.
