Stat command

i know this command does not exist in solaris. however, i read somewhere on this forum that basically everything the stat command provides in other oses can be obtained in solaris using the ls command.

i've searched the forum for a while now and i cant find the thread. does anyone know about anything about this?

basically, there it appears there are options you can pass to the ls command that'll make it provide the information you want on the file or directory you specify.

'man ls' is more likely to provide the information you need.
