I don't even know if it is possible. I've been trying to find an answer, and couldn't so I turn to everyone here for help! (In the event that it is possible.)
I know it is possible to save the command output to a text file and I have no issue with that. However, I really love how it comes out in the terminal, all nicely color coded and neatly organized. But it doesn't come out so pretty in a text file and things are harder to find.
To show you all what I was doing:
ls -R /media/ai/WALKMAN/MUSIC
That way I could list all the files that are in the folder as well as the contents of the folders within. (I have inside of all these band folders (within alphabetical folders) are songs. I've got 2000+ and would like a list because I've noticed I have some repeats scattered.)
Everything comes out nice and color coded in the terminal. But when you do:
ls -R /media/ai/WALKMAN/MUSIC > filename.txt
That's just a plain textfile and while things are listed, it is a very long list and very hard to skim through.
So I was wondering if it were possible to have the output saved either in an HTML/XML document or a table so it'd be easier to pilfer through the tremendous list?
