List of files

Now this should be easy, but I want a way of listing all of the plain files in a directory, without any directories listed and without recursing into the directories.
The only thing that we've come up with is
Code:
ls -p | grep -v /

Any other ideas?

test for directories
Code:
for files in *; do if [ ! -d "$files" ];then   echo $files; fi; done

Code:
ls -ald * | grep \^\-

(Note: This will not show files starting with a full stop character).
