Inconsistent spacing in hdfs dfs -ls -R output, need delimiter

Inconsistent spacing in hdfs dfs -ls -R output, need delimiter

Explorer

I'm trying to get a properly delimited output of all the files outputted under the 

 

hdfs dfs -ls -R /

 

command in hdfs.

 

When I run the command I get inconsistent delimiters in the output. Is there a way to add a delimiter such as tab or comma to the output?

 

The aim is to pop the output into an excel file and have no overlap in the columns.
