How to Limit "ls -la a*" to Current Directory
When I execute a list directory contents command (ls) with a filename filter, such as:
$ ls -la s*
the system returns all of the files that start with "s", which is what I want, but it also returns all of the directories that start with "s", which is OK, but then it also returns ALL of the contents of those directories, regardless of their initial.
Is there a way to limit the response to just the current directory and not its sub directories?
