Description Brian "netdragon" Bober 2005-04-01 13:59:59 EST
Description of problem:

ls has no way to individually specify columns, yet it attempts to do so with
various parameters like -gG, etc, but doesn't go all the way. The only
alternative is find through the clunky --printf statement.

I suggest a --columns= parameter with a comma deliminated list of the columns
you want, including size, blocks, time, name, basename, user, group, etc.
