                  file status information) with -l: show ctime and  sort  by  name
                  otherwise: sort by ctime
           -C     list entries by columns
                  colorize  the  output.   WHEN  defaults  to  'always'  or can be

           -d, --directory

                  append indicator (one of */=>@|) to entries
                  likewise, except do not append '*'
                  disables grouping

           -h, --human-readable
                  with -l, print sizes in human readable format (e.g., 1K 234M 2G)
           --si   likewise, but use powers of 1000 not 1024
           -H, --dereference-command-line
                  follow symbolic links listed on the command line
                  follow each command line symbolic link that points to  a  direc-
                  do  not  list implied entries matching shell PATTERN (overridden
                  by -a or -A)
                  append indicator with style WORD to entry names: none (default),
                  slash (-p), file-type (--file-type), classify (-F)
           -i, --inode
                  print the index number of each file
           -I, --ignore=PATTERN
                  do not list implied entries matching shell PATTERN
           -k     like --block-size=1K
           -l     use a long listing format
           -L, --dereference
                  when showing file information for a symbolic link, show informa-
                  tion for the file the link references rather than for  the  link
           -m     fill width with a comma separated list of entries
           -n, --numeric-uid-gid
                  like -l, but list numeric user and group IDs
           -N, --literal

                  print the allocated size of each file, in blocks
           -S     sort by file size
                  sort by WORD instead of name: none -U, extension  -X,  size  -S,
                  time -t, version -v
                  with  -l,  show time as WORD instead of modification time: atime
                  -u, access -u, use -u, ctime -c, or  status  -c;  use  specified
                  time as sort key if --sort=time
                  with  -l, show times using style STYLE: full-iso, long-iso, iso,
                  locale, +FORMAT.  FORMAT is interpreted like 'date';  if  FORMAT
                  is  FORMAT1<newline>FORMAT2, FORMAT1 applies to non-recent files
                  and FORMAT2 to recent files; if STYLE is prefixed with 'posix-',
                  STYLE takes effect only outside the POSIX locale
           -t     sort by modification time
           -T, --tabsize=COLS
                  assume tab stops at each COLS instead of 8
           -u     with  -lt:  sort  by, and show, access time with -l: show access
                  time and sort by name otherwise: sort by access time
           -U     do not sort; list entries in directory order
           -v     natural sort of (version) numbers within text
           -w, --width=COLS
                  assume screen width instead of current value
           -x     list entries by lines instead of by columns
           -X     sort alphabetically by entry extension
           -1     list one file per line
           SELinux options:
                  output version information and exit
           SIZE may be (or may be an integer optionally followed by) one  of  fol-
           lowing: KB 1000, K 1024, MB 1000*1000, M 1024*1024, and so on for G, T,
           P, E, Z, Y.
           Using color to distinguish file types is disabled both by  default  and
           with  --color=never.  With --color=auto, ls emits color codes only when
           standard output is connected to a terminal.  The LS_COLORS  environment
           variable can change the settings.  Use the dircolors command to set it.
       Exit status:
           0      if OK,
           1      if minor problems (e.g., cannot access subdirectory),
           2      if serious trouble (e.g., cannot access command-line  argument).
