What's wrong with this picture?


Took me a while to see the difference.

Thought there were two files with the same name in a single directory.

Code:
> ls -n
total 32984
-rw-r--r-- 1 1000 1000  7228964 Nov 28  2012 install_flash_player_11_linux_x86_64.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 1000 1000  7261649 Jul 16 07:41 install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 1000 1000 19223824 Oct 29  2012 libflashplayer.so
-rw-r--r-- 1 1000 1000     4009 Oct 29  2012 readme.txt
drwxr-xr-x 6 1000 1000     4096 Oct 29  2012 usr

It would be more challenging if the filename had one or more spaces at the end.
Code:
$ ls -n
