I have done a bit of searching online, and I am trying to find a way to recursively list all files with their absolute path and with their permissions. I want to do this so that I can
grep out what I want, so that when I run the command, I can get just the matching files, their permissions, and their full paths, like:
<search command> | grep file.name
I would prefer to use
ls because it is the fastest, and I would type:
ls -alR $PWD/
But this doesn't show the file's path, so if I
grep'ed the output, then I would see file permissions, but not the directory from which it originated.
I can use
ls integrated with
grep to get the output in exactly the format that I want, and I could use something like this:
ls -ault `find $PWD/ -type f` | grep file.name
But this is extremely slow, I'm guessing because two commands are actually running.
If I just use
grep, then it goes faster, but it is a bunch to type:
find $PWD/ -type f -name file.name -printf '%M %u %g %s\t%a\t%p\r\n'
This will give me a nice format (It also includes the user, group, size, and last date of access, which are helpful). However, it is a ton to type, and it is certainly not as fast as using
Is there a faster way to do what I am trying to do than to use
