Description Miloslav Trmac 2000-07-03 16:53:02 EDT
'l.' is aliased in /etc/profile.d/colorls.{sh,csh} to 'ls .[a-zA-Z]* --color=tty'. When there is a subdirectory starting with dot, its contents are listed, not just its name (Go to your home directory and type 'l.'. You probably won't like that.) I believe the correct alias is 'ls -d .[a-zA-Z]* --color=tty'.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-10-24 04:57:35 EDT
The "l." alias is taken from the (old) DLD distribution [acquired by Red Hat last year], which had it exactly that way.
I agree that your version is nicer, though, and have changed it in 4.0.27-1.
