Thanks for your reply.

My wish!

I have a directory tree with about 100 directories. (with pictures).
five main directories then the rest as sub-directories.

I'm about to write a program to get a quick view over all directories on 
the screen.
Thinking of presenting the main directories in 5 columns and the other 
directories under these.

I was going to use different colors to separate subdirectories of the 
subdirectories below these,

Subdirectories can be changed (directories can be added and directories 
can be removed)
As long as this is presented on the screen, I feel no major problems.

But now came a desire - Can you print the structure of directories?
If the directory structure was static it would have been easy....


Began to seek a program so I could control the printing, and then I 
ended up here.
Found a little guide somewhere (which I lost), which described the step 
by step how to program. It looked easy to manage.
After that, I began to seek a more comprehensive manual, and then began 
it to "fuss itself"
(pdfLaTeX - pdfTeX - ConTeX - MikTex - TexLive - TexWorks - LuaTex - 
XeTex.....and so on)

Whats differ?
Which "version" can solve my problem?
What kind of "TeX" I'll teach me to reach this goal?

Basically, I deal with text (a4, maybe landscape, font, size, bold, 
color, table....)
(But it can be good if it is possible to add such as a logo))

As my solution now looks like
I intend to write a program (for example in pdflatex), which gives me a 
"good" layout.
then I intend to write another program that modify in the (. Tex) file
after that the file is automatically converted to a PDF file.

I can not teach me "everything", but want to solve my problem
