Other interesting flags for the ls command are:
-F Marks directories with a trailing slash and executable files with a trailing asterisk. -l Lists in long format. Gives all sorts of information. -R Recursively lists subdirectories encountered. -s Gives the size of each file. -t Sorts by time modified instead of by name.It is possible to limit the scope of the files and subdirectories by using wildcard characters. For example, I would type
ls q*if I wanted to list all the files and subdirectories that began with a q.
Note that the ls command lists files in the working directory only, unless you include the pathname to another directory whose filenames you want to list.
