#405 in Command line utilities
This is a high performance, nifty, command-line tool written in rust to navigate through the filesystem. It can be used to -
- Find Directories, Symlinks and Files by their full/partial name.
- Find the sizes of Directories recursively.
- Find permissions of Filesystem Entries (POSIX-style permissions only).
- General Navigation and exploration of the filesystem through the command-line.
It is a successor to AgFileSystemScanner, which is the same tool written in C++. Rust was used over C++ due to its verbose, compile-time error handling. Exceptions are not present in rust, which reduces the chances of crashes happening.
fss [PATH] [options] [-r [DEPTH]] [-S|--search|--search-noext|--contains PATTERN]
-r, --recursive Recursively scan directories (can be followed by a positive integer to indicate the depth) -p, --permissions Show permissions of all entries -t, --modification-time Show time of last modification of entries -f, --files Show Regular Files (normally hidden) -l, --symlinks Show Symlinks (normally hidden) -s, --special Show Special Files such as sockets, pipes, etc. (normally hidden) -d, --dir-size Recursively calculate and display the size of each directory -a, --abs Show the absolute path of each entry without any indentation -S, --search Only show entries whose name completely matches the following string completely --search-noext Only show entries whose name(except for the extension) completely matches the following string completely --contains Only show entries whose name contains the following string completely -e, --show-err Show errors -h, --help Print Usage Instructions
PATH is the path to the directory from which to start the scan.
Only one of the search options(
--contains) can be set at a time.
The argument after the search flag is treated as the search pattern.
Print the directories in the current directory, recursively going down two levels -
fss -r 2
Print the contents of
/proc, including files, symlinks and special files with their permissions -
fss "/proc" -f -l -s -p
Recursively search for all directories named
C:// and show their sizes, last modification times -
fss "C:/" -r -d -t -S "proc"
