Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

...or you can do this, which does exactly what the OP wants
ls -d $PWD/*
Actually it isn't "exactly" because he clearly listed one file per line in his desired output. He'd have to do:
ls -1d $PWD/* to get that your way - also it assumes he's sitting in the directory when he runs the command. The find command I listed doesn't require that or the extra option.

Very useful your post, Karl Godt. By the way, I assume there's no way that ls displays only directory names. I always do this combining ls with some tool like grep, but to have it done by means of ls alone would be the ideal, I think. And if it cannot be done, then I think the Unix command ls lacks some functionality. Cheers.
