Lightbulb List of all files in a UNIX system

Hello,

I have a special request. I'm trying to compile a list of files from several distributions of UNIX systems (especially after a fresh or roughly fresh install). Basically, I need the output of the command "find /" when logged in as root.

Code:
$ su
$ find / > list_of_files

I am especially interested in IRIX since I don't have access to my old IRIX system anymore. I am working on setting up a FreeBSD system and I wanted to kind of implement a classic X11 system plus do some research on some of the other different tools that are specific to the different UNIX's.

Anyhow, if anyone's interested in doing that, I would be more than happy to post it up on my website for other's who are interested as well.

Thanks!

P.S. I will delete any lines of files listed in any "HOME" directories for privacy reasons.

In bash, grep -v -e '^[[:space:]]*$' file.txt will filter all the blank lines from file.txt and save the results in a file called file.txt.
True or False?
