If I execute, e.g.
Get-ChildItem *.ext -recurse
the output consists of a series of Directory: entries followed by one entry for each each matching file. That's useful for many purposes, but today I'd like a result (analogous to the Unix find command) in which each matching file appears on a line by itself and shows its full relative path (and no other lines appear).
I've searched a bit but haven't found a solution.
-Name switch does what you want:
# Lists file / dir. paths as *relative paths* (strings). # (relative to the input dir, which is implicitly the current one here). Get-ChildItem -Filter *.ext -Recurse -Name
Note that I've used
-Filter, which significantly speeds up the traversal.
Caveat: As of PowerShell 7.0,
-Name suffers from performance problems and behavioral quirks; see these GitHub issues:
