       nor --sort.

       -a, --all
	      do not hide entries starting with .

       -A, --almost-all
	      do not list implied . and ..

       -B, --ignore-backups
	      do not list implied entries ending with ~

       -c     with  -lt:  sort	by, and show, ctime (time of last
	      modification of file status information)	with  -l:
	      show  ctime  and	sort  by  name otherwise: sort by

       -C     list entries by columns

	      control whether color is used to	distinguish  file
	      types.  WHEN may be `never', `always', or `auto'

       -d, --directory
	      list directory entries instead of contents

       -D, --dired

       -F, --classify
	      append indicator (one of */=@|) to entries

	      across  -x, commas -m, horizontal -x, long -l, sin

       -h, --human-readable
	      print sizes in human readable format (e.g., 1K 234M

       --si   likewise, but use powers of 1000 not 1024

       -H     same  as	`--si' for now; soon to change to conform
	      to POSIX

       --indicator-style=WORD append indicator with style WORD to
       entry names:
	      none (default), classify (-F), file-type (-p)

       -i, --inode
	      print index number of each file

       -I, --ignore=PATTERN
	      do not list implied entries matching shell PATTERN

       -k, --kilobytes
	      like --block-size=1024

       -l     use a long listing format

       -L, --dereference
	      list entries pointed to by symbolic links

       -m     fill width with a comma separated list of entries

       -n, --numeric-uid-gid
	      list numeric UIDs and GIDs instead of names

       -N, --literal
	      print raw entry names  (don't  treat  e.g.  control

       -o     use long listing format without group info

       -p, --file-type
	      append indicator (one of /=@|) to entries

       -q, --hide-control-chars

	      program is `ls' and output is a terminal)

       -Q, --quote-name
	      enclose entry names in double quotes

	      use quoting style WORD for  entry	 names:	 literal,
	      locale, shell, shell-always, c, escape

       -r, --reverse
	      reverse order while sorting

       -R, --recursive
	      list subdirectories recursively

       -s, --size
	      print size of each file, in blocks

       -S     sort by file size

	      extension -X, none -U, size -S, time -t, version -v

	      status -c, time -t, atime -u, access -u, use -u

	      show time as WORD	 instead  of  modification  time:
	      atime,  access, use, ctime or status; use specified
	      time as sort key if --sort=time

       -t     sort by modification time

       -T, --tabsize=COLS
	      assume tab stops at each COLS instead of 8

       -u     with -lt: sort by, and show, access time	with  -l:
	      show  access  time and sort by name otherwise: sort
	      by access time

       -U     do not sort; list entries in directory order

       -v     sort by version

       -w, --width=COLS
	      assume screen width instead of current value

       -x     list entries by lines instead of by columns

       -X     sort alphabetically by entry extension

       -1     list one file per line

       --help display this help and exit

	      output version information and exit

       By default, color is not	 used  to  distinguish	types  of
       files.	That  is equivalent to using --color=none.  Using
       the --color option without the optional WHEN  argument  is
       equivalent  to  using  --color=always.  With --color=auto,
       color codes are output only if  standard	 output	 is  con
       nected to a terminal (tty).
