Pimp your ls

2010-05-27 105 words 1 min read

Here are some of the things that you can do with your ls command.

First off you can use alias’s to help you type the most typical ls commands. I will give you some examples:

alias ls =”ls –color –classify”
alias ls.=”ls -d .*”

Very commonly used :

    <div class="text codecolorer">
      alias ll="ls -lhvrt"<br /> lsd="ls -lUd */" # List directories only

And after all this you can download the l script from pixelbeat. Quite interesting:
