How to I flag 'ls' to list only the current sub-directories?


Feel I should know this...

I don't know of an ls flag that will do it but this should work...

ls -AF | grep \/

or

find . -maxdepth 1 -type d

Just in case there are hidden directories, you might use this: ls -d .*"/" *"/"

If it's something you need to do a lot you can always make an alias...

In tcsh...

alias lss 'ls -AF | grep \/'

Where "lss" can be anything you like.

I've done that before on my on workstation, but when I have to add it to eight AIX boxes, three Lunux servers, etc, etc, etc it becomes a bit of a bind remembering which one's which...
