The "ls" command


Coming from DOS and windows, I'm used to using the dir command like this:

dir m*

to find all files and directories that start with "m" in the current directory. In linux, when I do that command, I get those same results but it also gives me the contents of sub-folders that start with "m".

How do I get "ls" to work the same os "dir" in my example?

ls -ld m*

Without the l if you're not into detail, of course.


Cheers,
Tink
