CLI....ls (or similar command)...formatting output
In command line, say for instance I want to see a listing of all files and folders of a certain directory. It outputs and is obviously alphabetized...say for instance I wanted to see all the output to be formatted on the screen regardless how big the listing may be. I want the output put into columns (rather than just 1) so I can see a listing of all files and folders. How would I do this? I went through the ls command with its different options but can't pinpoint how to do it. Any ideas?
