Another way if you don't have perl use
du.
If you want an output like DOS there is no such program. You have to write your own.

you may use "ls -l|more" to obtain a directory listing.

You seem to imply that there's room for the answer to be better suited.
Was there something you would have preferred to change?

find . -type d -print | perl -pe 's#[^/]*/#   #g'
  or
du -r | perl -pe 's#[^/]*/#    #g'
  (which shows the tree backwards)
