hpls -- list the contents of a directory on an HFS+ volume SYNOPSIS
hpls [options] [hfs-path ...] Description hpls is used to list files and directories on an HFS+ volume. If one or more arguments are given, each file or directory is shown; other- wise, the contents of the current working directory are displayed. Options -1 Each entry appears on a line by itself. This is the default if standard output is not a terminal. -a All entries are shown, including "invisible" files. The default is to omit invisible files. -c Sort and display entries by their creation date, rather than their modification date. -d List directory entries themselves rather than their contents. Normally the contents are shown for named directories on the com- mand-line. -i Show the catalogue ID for each entry. Every file and directory on an HFS+ volume has a unique catalogue ID. -l Display entries in long format. This format shows the entry type ("d" for directory, "f" for file, "F" for locked file), flags ("i" for invisible), type and creator (four-character strings) for files only, size (number of items in a directory or resource and data bytes of a file, respectively), date of last modification (or creation if the -c flag is given), and name. -m Display entries in a continuous format separated by commas. -q Replace special and non-printable characters in displayed filenames with question marks (?). This is the default when standard output is a terminal. -r Sort entries in reverse order before displaying. -s Show the file size for each entry in 1K block units. The size includes blocks used for both data and resource forks. -t Sort and display entries by time. Normally files will be sorted by name. This option uses the last modification date to sort unless -c is also specified. -x Display entries in column format like -C, but sorted horizontally into rows rather than columns. -w width Format output lines suitable for display in the given width. Normally the width will be determined from your terminal, from the environment variable COLUMNS, or from a default value of 80. -C Display entries in column format with entries sorted vertically. This is the default output format when standard output is a terminal. -F Cause certain output filenames to be followed by a single-character flag indicating the nature of the entry; directories are fol- lowed by a slash "/" and executable Macintosh applications are followed by an asterisk "*". -N Cause all filenames to be output verbatim without question-mark substitution. -R For each directory that is encountered in a listing, recursively descend into and display its contents.

ls - list contents of directory SYNOPSIS
ls [ -ltasdrucifg ] name ... DESCRIPTION
For each directory argument, ls lists the contents of the directory; for each file argument, ls repeats its name and any other information requested. The output is sorted alphabetically by default. When no argument is given, the current directory is listed. When several arguments are given, the arguments are first sorted appropriately, but file arguments appear before directories and their contents. There are several options: -l List in long format, giving mode, number of links, owner, size in bytes, and time of last modification for each file. (See below.) If the file is a special file the size field will instead contain the major and minor device numbers. -t Sort by time modified (latest first) instead of by name, as is normal. -a List all entries; usually `.' and `..' are suppressed. -s Give size in blocks, including indirect blocks, for each entry. -d If argument is a directory, list only its name, not its contents (mostly used with -l to get status on directory). -r Reverse the order of sort to get reverse alphabetic or oldest first as appropriate. -u Use time of last access instead of last modification for sorting (-t) or printing (-l). -c Use time of last modification to inode (mode, etc.) instead of last modification to file for sorting (-t) or printing (-l). -i Print i-number in first column of the report for each file listed. -f Force each argument to be interpreted as a directory and list the name found in each slot. This option turns off -l, -t, -s, and -r, and turns on -a; the order is the order in which entries appear in the directory. -g Give group ID instead of owner ID in long listing. The mode printed under the -l option contains 11 characters which are interpreted as follows: the first character is d if the entry is a directory; b if the entry is a block-type special file; c if the entry is a character-type special file; - if the entry is a plain file. The next 9 characters are interpreted as three sets of three bits each. The first set refers to owner permissions; the next to permissions to others in the same user-group; and the last to all others. Within each set the three characters indicate permission respectively to read, to write, or to execute the file as a program. For a directory, `execute' permission is interpreted to mean permission to search the directory for a specified file. The permissions are indicated as follows: r if the file is readable; w if the file is writable; x if the file is executable; - if the indicated permission is not granted. The group-execute permission character is given as s if the file has set-group-ID mode; likewise the user-execute permission character is given as s if the file has set-user-ID mode. The last character of the mode (normally `x' or `-') is t if the 1000 bit of the mode is on. See chmod(1) for the meaning of this mode. When the sizes of the files in a directory are listed, a total count of blocks, including indirect blocks is printed. FILES
/etc/passwd to get user ID's for `ls -l'. /etc/group to get group ID's for `ls -g'. LS(1)
