LS(1)									 LS(1)

       ls, lc - list contents of directory

       ls [ -dlmnpqrstuFQT ] name ...

       lc [ -dlmnqrstuFQT ] name ...

       For  each  directory  argument, ls lists the contents of the directory;
       for each file argument, ls repeats its name and any  other  information
       requested.  When no argument is given, the current directory is listed.
       By default, the output is sorted alphabetically by name.

       Lc is the same as ls, but sets the  -p  option  and  pipes  the	output
       through mc(1).

       There are a number of options:

       -d     If argument is a directory, list it, not its contents.

       -l     List  in	long format, giving mode (see below), file system type
	      (e.g., for devices,  the	#  code	 letter	 that  names  it;  see
	      intro(3)),  the instance or subdevice number, owner, group, size
	      in bytes, and time of last modification for each file.

       -m     List the name of the user who most recently modified the file.

       -n     Don't sort the listing.

       -p     Print only the final path element of each file name.

       -q     List the qid (see stat(2)) of each file; the printed fields  are
	      in the order path, version, and type.

       -r     Reverse the order of sort.

       -s     Give size in Kbytes for each entry.

       -t     Sort by time modified (latest first) instead of by name.

       -u     Under  -t	 sort  by  time of last access; under -l print time of
	      last access.

       -F     Add the character / after all directory names and the  character
	      * after all executable files.

       -T     Print  the  character t before each file if it has the temporary
	      flag set, and - otherwise.

       -Q     By default, printed file names are quoted if they contain	 char‐
	      acters special to rc(1).	The -Q flag disables this behavior.

       The  mode  printed  under  the -l option contains 11 characters, inter‐
       preted as follows: the first character is

       d      if the entry is a directory;

       a      if the entry is an append-only file;

       -      if the entry is a plain file.

       The next letter is l if the file is exclusive  access  (one  writer  or
       reader at a time).

       The last 9 characters are interpreted as three sets of three bits each.
       The first set refers to owner permissions; the next to  permissions  to
       others in the same user-group; and the last to all others.  Within each
       set the three characters indicate permission respectively to  read,  to
       write, or to execute the file as a program.  For a directory, `execute'
       permission is interpreted to mean permission to	search	the  directory
       for a specified file.  The permissions are indicated as follows:

       r  if the file is readable;
       w  if the file is writable;
       x  if the file is executable;
       -  if none of the above permissions is granted.
