Tools What command can display files in a tree?

Is there a command that displays a certain path of files in a tree just like the dos command 'tree'?

Maybe something like:
find . -type d -print | sed -e 's;[^/]*/;|____;g;s;____|; |;g'

those don't look like valid commands.

Before dismissing a response out of hand, it's best to at least try the proposed solution. I ran Perderabo's code and got a nice looking tree.

I confirm that Perderabo's code works perfectly!

And, WOW!!

That command truly impressed me Smilie

I've never thought that could be possible displaying a tree with a simple sed command Smilie

Thanks. Now that I'm at home I can actually try the command. Sorry, it didn't look like valid arguments before.
