I need to list the full paths to subdirectories within a given directory in Unix.  Here's what I'm using to find the directories:


cd /usr/test
find * -type d

This give me the following:
yrcw
yrcw/includes
yrcw/pdf

How can I modify the 'find' command to also show the full path such as the following:
/usr/testyrcw
/usr/testyrcw/includes
/usr/testyrcw/pdf

Thanks, and look forward to some help!

Hello aggunia,

find . -type d | while read name
do
   dirname=`echo $name | sed 's/^\.//'`
   echo `pwd`$dirname
done

find * -type d | while read d
