Try using the GNU ls in /opt/freeware/bin (if you have it installed)
If it is fine, make sure /opt/freeware/bin is ahead of /usr/bin in your PATH

Welcome to the forum.

You will probably get more answers if your question is in a new thread rather than being appended to an existing, unrelated thread as it is now.

Best wishes ... cheers, drl
