To do a recursive directory listing like dir /s try the following: ls -Rl (case sensitive)

To stop a listing after each page, do the following: ls | more (the | is a pipe, use shift + \)

wat i m tryin to do is a search for all of the *.rpm/other files on my hdd
i will normally do a "dir /s *.bat" to list out all the *.bat files in the current dir and subdir

i tried using "ls -Rl *.rpm" but it does not work????

[root@cactuar /]# ls -Rl *.rpm
ls: *.rpm: No such file or directory

well i did ls *gif and it showed just the gif files. I don't understand what your trying to accomplish with the RI options. i don't see any of those options when i do man ls. So try just doing ls *rpm. I think what your doing is that ls is thiking your looking for -RI in a directory labeled *.rpm.

also if your looking for the rpms cuz you want to know what you have installed you can just do
rpm -qa
and that will list all the rpms you have installed. Or if you want to check for a specific program to see if it is installed you can do rpm -qa | grep "programname"

Also
Code:
find /path/to/dir -iregex ".*\.sh"
or
Code:
find -iregex ".*\.sh"
if you're already in the right directory.
