I installed tree and found a useful forest

Today I was idly reading some random unixy stuff, and, came across the 'tree' command.

I had to install it for Ubuntu, but, it definitely was well worth it.

It's s useful if you are connecting with a shell and need to navigate a forest, and also makes a neat html file from any tree you like, which looks good in lynx, or in any web browser for that matter.

The tree gives you the big picture, with tree -d -H . > tree.html

(OMG, I'll be whistling this all day long now.  And so will you ;-D )
