2.3)  How do I get a recursive directory listing?

      One of the following may do what you want:

        ls -R                   (not all versions of "ls" have -R)
        find . -print           (should work everywhere)
        du -a .                 (shows you both the name and size)

      If you're looking for a wildcard pattern that will match all ".c"
      files in this directory and below, you won't find one, but you
      can use

        % some-command `find . -name '*.c' -print`

      "find" is a powerful program.  Learn about it.
