ls -l prints extended information. Read my previous post. Do not use -l unless you actually need it for something for it is a waste of time and, if your program isn't built to filter the extra stuff out, will feed your program dozens of garbage filenames.

The best book on UNIX usually comes with it. You can access manual pages on nearly any command with the 'man' command. Try 'man ls'.

Please practice the difference between:

ls -l

(ls hyphen ell)


ls -1

(hyphen one)

It will help you when writing these scripts.
