I'm searching a large number of text files which are organized in various subdirectories. I can run a command such as
grep -lr foobar ./, and I get results like the following:
./dirA/dirA.A/abc.txt ./dirA/dirA.A/def.txt ./dirA/dirA.A/dirA.A.A/ghi.txt ./dirA/dirA.B/jkl.txt ./dirB/mno.txt
I would like some way to display these in a visual tree, similar to how the
tree command works. Something roughly like this:
./ dirA/ dirA.A/ abc.txt def.txt dirA.A.A/ ghi.txt dirA.B/ jkl.txt dirB/ mno.txt
It seems like it'd be trivial to do this in some Python script with a stack, but I'd really like some way to do this straight from bash if there's a way to do it. So I guess I'm looking for a way to either (a) format/transform the output of
grep, OR (b) some other generic "indent-by-common-prefix" utility that I've so-far been unable to find.
