Code:
ls -d
lsd, of course

Of course you would have learned that by reading a few lines from
Code:
man ls
So NEXT TIME please read the man page first...

Use "ls */ -d"
or
"find ./ -maxdepth 1 -type d"

Here's another one:
Code:
ls -l | grep ^d

Just thought I'd add that if you want to know the size of what they contain use:

Code:
du -h --max-depth 1

I would suggest using anything but the very first suggestion

Code:
ls */ -d


The difference between that - and the other three is pretty clear.


[HTML]root@zach [~]# ls -d */
chkrootkit// cpanel3-skel// down// mytop// public_ftp// public_html// work//[/HTML]





Code:
root@zach [~]# find ./ -maxdepth 1 -type d
./
./.cpmysqlrpm
./.spamassassin
./cpanel3-skel
./.MirrorSearch
./work
./.wapi
./down
./public_html
./mytop
./.cpcpan
./chkrootkit
./.cpobjcache
./.cpanel-datastore
./.gnupg
./.gconfd
./public_ftp
./.ssh


Code:
root@zach [~]# du -h --max-depth 1
