On occasion, like when working with ZendFramework, you may want to build a directory tree.
Did you know you can build a recursive directory tree?
mkdir normaly works like this:
promt$> mkdir directory-name directory-name
To build a directory and another directory inside of it you can do the following:
promt$> mkdir -p parent-directory/child-directory directory-name/ child-directory
You can even make a grandchild directory.
promt$> mkdir -p parent-directory/child-directory/grandchild-directory directory-name/ child-directory/ grandchild-directory
Use the tree command to see the directory tree.
If you’re on a mac, you can install the tree command with brew.
promt$>brew install tree
Then try this:
promt$> tree parent* parent-directory └── child-directory └── grandchild-directory
