- Should be a better way code the various tree formats (XML/HTML/Unix) to
share more code. Probably make a generic tree crawling routine that calls
various function pointers to emit the file information based on the kind
of tree we want.
- Make wide character support less of a hack.
- Fully support HTML colorization properly.
- Go over the -R option for HTML output and make it cleaner & less of a hack.
Should do -R internally so we don't have to rebuild a command line or use
something awful like system(). Should be doable by saving some state and
recursing and also separating out parts of main.
- Should probably make it so that options like -p, -u, etc print out info for
the top directory, if people think that would be desirable.
- Might be nice to prune files by things like type, mode, access/modify/change
time, uid/gid, etc. ala find.
- Just incorporate the stat structure into _info, since we now need most of
the structure anyway.
- With the addition of TREE_COLORS, add some custom options to perhaps colorize
metadata like the permissions, date, username, etc, and change the color of
the tree lines and so on.
- Make tree look for a .comments file in a directory and append the text from
that file to the output of the files and directories, so that the output
looks like Slackware's README file, like:
> tree -F --comments
|-- kernels/ Precompiled Linux 22.214.171.124 kernel images.
| |-- hugesmp.s The default standard install kernel for Slackware.
| | This supports pretty much everything in the
| | 126.96.36.199 kernel, and includes support for Speakup.
| | This kernel requires at least a Pentium-Pro processor.
| `-- huge.s A single-processor version of huge.s that will
| function with older hardware such as a 486 with
| 128MB (64MB _might_ work) or more of RAM.
| This kernel also supports Speakup.
Might be particularly nice for the HTML output, where the comments could be
made as mouse-over popups or the like.
