Shell command to list file path, file names, and file size.

I would like a single line command in shell that will produce the following output:

/path/to/file/|3333.txt|374

/path/to/file is the root path to all the text files in sub directories built from this path
3333.txt is the file name of the text file found in the path
374 is the file size in bytes of the file

I want this output so I can dump this into an array and separate it by |
I only need text (txt) files and don't want . or .. or anything else. Just the text files recursively from the /path/to/file/ directory.

What would be the input?  Which directory would you be in ?

If you are in the same directory as the files are, something like this would work

 ls -l  | grep "^-" |awk -v path=$(pwd) -F" " '{print path"|"$NF"|"$4}'

Open in new window

If you need a recursive version, only reporting *.txt files and allowing for spaces in file names:
find /path/to/file -type f -name "*.txt" | while read f
do
echo ${dirname "$f")'|'$(basename "$f")'|'$(stat -c "%s" "$f")
done > result.dat

Open in new window

It will be a lot slower that farzanj's awk version.
