So the simple “ls” command is one we use often but like many nix commands you may not delve into it other than basic usage. ls -1 is interesting as it gives a directory list in one column of text – this can be great if you want to pipe it into a search or another collection of commands.
ls -1 3245 340598 453.tx asdf bb.txt d9e8rh.txt qwer sdfew.sh
ls -f is also useful as it creates a sorted list
ls -f ls -f 3245 453.tx bb.txt qwer 340598 asdf d9e8rh.txt sdfew.sh
Combining the 2 commands is also possible ls -f -1
3245 340598 453.tx asdf bb.txt d9e8rh.txt qwer sdfew.sh
On one level the above is fairly simple stuff, but it’s the combination of these lego like commands that suddenly become very useful and powerful over time.
