You mean, the solution TenTenths gave you in post #2, and which Habitual gave you in post #3???? The same "maxdepth" flags??? Then you got sarcastic with your "busy boy" comments...and go on to use that same solution, and thank someone else??

Nice. And sundialsvcs asked (rightly so), why you can't use ls, if you only want to search the current directory?

That having said, i came to know that the "maxdepth" is not POSIX compliant. So, i was trying out the "prune" option, but i am unable to find the hidden files & directories.
Can you suggest a solution ?
try

find . -path './*' -prune -name '.*'

This will give you all the hidden files and directories in the current directory.
