I'm trying to find a way to do 'ls -la' without a bunch of symlinks showing up in the directory listing. The reason is that my home-directory has a bunch of dotfiles symlinked to another directory, and when I type 'ls -la' to see the dotfiles which are not symlinked, the listing is cluttered by a bunch of nasty-looking symlinks. I tried piping ls's output a sed-script and some grepping here and there, but I couldn't find a good way to do it. If anyone of you knows of a simpler way to do it (such as an internal ls-flag
), I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
