What would you like to do?
# ls aliases
#
# in the context of the current directory
#
# l list everything
# ld list just the directories
# lf list just the files
#
# ^^^ these can be coupled with some modifiers.
# modifier examples:
#
# lf-h "list files minus hidden ones"
#
# ldh "list directories that are hidden"
#
# you could also write:
#
# lhd "list hidden directories"
#
# l-hf "list non-hidden files"
#
# add a trailing 't' to print in table view (multiple columns)
#
# lt "list everything in table view"
#
# lhft "list hidden files in table view"
#
# ltd-h "list, in table view, directories that are not hidden"
#
#
# FAQ:
#
# Does this make the unix util `ld` inaccessible?
# -- Finally!
#
# Hey these are aliases --will they work if I pass in some args?
# -- Mostly no ;D
#
# What's the equivalent of a bare `ls` call?
# l-ht
