For the longest time, whenever I'd need to perform an operation in all sub-directories under a directory tree, I'd write a shell script for each operation to recurse into the tree. After a few years, I wised up and thought, "Why can't I write an universal recurse script?"
That's exactly what this script does. It recursively ascend down all sub-directories in the current path, blindly executing the command you specify.
You can do things like . . .
Recurse.sh "cat *.txt"
You can pretty much dream of anything and try it with this script. Sky is the limit. Just because you don't delete everything under your home or rood directory. :-) Let us know what you are using this script for.

I found a minor bug in Recurse.sh today, where it wouldn't display the directory names in some cases. I've updated the script to fix that problem. the new version is attached below.
