       ncdt - directory tree printer with extended capabilities


       ncdt [-db?]  [--dirs] [--bitrate] [--prefix text ] [--help] [ directory [ name ]]


       ncdt  is a small utility for printing directory trees. It has some additional features not
       found in tree(1). Additional capabilities are:

       -      size field for directories displays the summary size of directory  subtree  instead
              of the size of the special file (which is somewhat more useful)

       -      sizes  are  displayed in a more readable format (that's a minor improvement, but it
              helps a little)

       -      MP3 files are detected; additional info is displayed for them  (which  is  probably
              the  nicest  thing  about NcdT) The info is displayed in a compact form, like <2:53
              v168JR+> where 2:53 is play time, v (if present) means the file  is  encoded  using
              VBR,  168  is bitrate (average bitrate for VBR files), J describes channel encoding
              (Mono, Stereo, Joint-Stereo, Dual channel), R (if present) means  the  file  has  a
              RIFF  header at the beginning, + (if present) means the file has ID3v2 tag attached
              - (if present) means there's no ID3 tag at all (none of these  means  there's  only
              ID3v1 tag present).

       NcdT is particularily nice for indexing CDs.


       -d --dirs
              Print only directories, omit files. This mode is a rough equivalent of du(1).

       -b --bitrate
              Print  bitrate info for directories. Bitrates are displayed both for ordinary files
              and directories. If all MP3 files in  a  given  directory  subtree  have  the  same
              bitrate  only  one  number  is  printed, if they have various bitrates the range is

       --prefix text
              Prefix listing with given text. This option is not intended for  general  use.   It
              might  be  used  by  programs using NcdT to index CDsor doing similar operations to
              record additional information.

       -? --help
              Display usage summary.


       When called without any parameters ncdt displays directory tree for current directory (.).

       When called with one parameter ncdt displays directory tree for specified directory.

       When called with two parameters ncdt displays directory tree for the  directory  specified
       as  its  first  parameter.   Second parameter is used as directory label for the top level
       directory (instead of directory name from parameter 1).


       ncdt   prints directory tree for the current directory. It will be labeled .

       ncdt /usr
              prints directory tree of /usr. It will be labeled /usr

       ncdt /cdrom 'CD #21'
              prints directory tree of /cdrom. It will be labeled CD #21

       ncdt -db /cdrom
              lists directory sizes, play times and bitrate ranges


       tree(1), du(1)


       NcdT uses quite a lot of memory. It's also not very fast, but on a decent  CPU  it  should
       not be noticeable.

       There are no real bugs I'm aware of. I don't think there are any now.
