Unix Tip #4356- February 13, 2014

DIR ALIAS REPRISE


The following alias will list just
the directories in a directory and
not other ordinary files. It will
list a directory as a directory even
if the directory is a symbolic link.

alias dir='ls -Lla|grep ^d'

Without the capital "L" in this alias
the alias will not list directories
that are symbolic links.
