files and directories


How can I distinguish between files and directories in Unix?
Well , I just want to use "ls" to print out very files that end with "file" in a directory where I have a few directories ending with "file" too.

glad u can help,

thanks

Here's one way:

find -maxdepth 1 -type f -name '*file'

or if you want the long output:

find -maxdepth 1 -type f -name '*file' -ls

Here's another:

ls -ld *file | grep -v ^d

There are probably others...
