WALK(1) WALK(1) NAME walk - walk a path SYNOPSIS walk [ -dftxu ] [ -n mind,maxd ] [ -e ststr ] [ name ... ] DESCRIPTION Walk recursively descends any directory arguments, printing the name of each file on a separate line. When no arguments are given, the current directory is assumed. Non-directory arguments are checked for existence, then printed, if so. Options are: -d Print only directories. -f Print only non-directories. -t Print a file only if it has the temporary flag set. -x Print a file only if it has any executable bits set. -u Unbuffered output. -n min,max Set the inclusive range of depths for filtering in results. Both min and max are optional. -e statfmt Setting the statfmt string allows specifying the data walk should print. It takes a string of characters, each corresponding to some piece of information about the file being traversed, and prints them separated by spaces. The statfmt characters are as follows: U owner name (uid) G group name (gid) M name of last user to modify (muid) a last access time (atime) m last modification time (mtime) n final path element (name) p path q qid path.version.type (see stat(2)) s size in bytes x permissions The default statfmt is simply, p. WALK(1) WALK(1) EXAMPLES List files in a directory, sorted by modification time. walk -femp catpics | sort -n | sed 's/^[^ ]+ //' Print the size and path of files (excluding dirs) in the working directory. walk -fn1 -esp SOURCE /sys/src/cmd/walk.c SEE ALSO ls(1), du(1) BUGS Statfmt character `x' displays permissions as an integer. Manipulating ifs is a nuisance. File names are assumed to not contain newlines. Correct invocation requires too much thought.
