Sort in .bashrc


Im trying to setup .bashrc so I can put it in skel. But first I want to have it so "normal" ppl (aka windows users) can read the out put. So what I was thinking is to set it up so it lists this in order, dir then files. But also alphabeticaly.

So far I can do either ls -la (then I got sort) or ls -Ula (then I got dirs first, unsorted).
I did check the man pages. Could not figure out who to accomplish this, so Im asking here...

Any one care to give me a hint? Thanks!

I don't know of any option to accomplish what you're shooting for. This might do what you need:
Code:
alias dir='ls -lA | grep "^d" | sort -k 9; ls -lA | grep -v "^d" | grep -v "^total" | sort -k 9'
There may be other, more efficient ways of doing it.

I'm not sure that you can. The output of "ls" is being fed through other commands, and they are likely stripping off the special character sequences that denote color changes.
