I have a little problem with the command "ls" when i redirect the output to a file
to redirect the output of ls in a file i do
$ls > destinationfile.txt
if i do a "cat" on the destinationfile.txt the file is printed on the screen correctly, but when i edit it with VI (for exemple) i have some strange characteres in the file like "^[[00m" at the begining and at the end of each line does anyone know why and how to redirect the out put of ls in a file with out these characteres?
Thanks in advance.
PS: sorry for this post but if i ask you that is because when i want to use the contenant of the destinationfile.txt in a script that giving me hard time.
Guess you're just unlucky eh?
FYI I'm on Fedora Core release 3 (Heidelberg), 2.6.10-1.770_FC3smp , vim 6.3.54 in case that helps.
I could manage without colour (old time programmer), but it's handy to have.
Don't think there's been any funny customisation to make it work.
