Question ls, grep


I wanted to `ls -l` but exclude everything that is a symbolic link. So I tried
ls -l | grep -E -v '-\>'
which doesn't work. Is there a way to get the regex to work, or did I just miss a ls option which will do the same thing?

since a link has permissions that start with l, (eg lrwx-wxr-x)...
why not use
Code:
ls -l |egrep -v ^l
which would eliminate any line that begins with a "l"

cheers
