MySQL this helps me out big time

ever since i started playing with unix at work i have found all kinds of helpful tools that my companie has added into our /usr/bin/

this is the one that helped the most


""""""ldr"""""""
Code:
#!/bin/sh
#
#  @(#) %filespec: ldr-2 %  %date_modified: Wed Sep  6 09:54:07 2000 %
#
#         Module:  ldr
#
#         List directories.
#         If directory name is not specified, list directories
#         under current directory.
#
#         Usage:  <ldr [dir name]>
#

if test $# -lt 1
then
   DIR="."
else
   DIR=$1
fi

for arg in $DIR/*
do
   if [ -d $arg ]
   then
      echo `basename $arg`
   fi
done
exit 0

Code:
ls -lR|grep ^d|awk '{ print $9 }'

this will also work. One of the best things about unix is there are atleast 10 ways to do the same thing. Each haveing its ups and downs over the other.

DIR

While on the subject.

If you would like to navigate a little faster this help a lot

move to the root dirrectory
/
/du > ( new filename )

####################

du = summarize disk usage ( by listing dirrec...)

> basically moves the out of du into a file of your own.

Have fun.
