"newer color 'ls'"
Authored by: skribble on Nov 14, '03 04:40:40PM
FWIW, the (BSD flavor) 'ls' in Panther is newish and has color. It behaves slightly differently the the GNU flavor 'ls' in that to get color you use the -G switch rather then --color. Also it colors things differently (but gives you many more coloring options). There really is no need to update to GNUFileutils.

I don't install fileutils anymore, either, as ls comes now in color. Just in case someone is interested: I had a bad experience with coreutils (fileutils is now a part of coreutils). Coreutils' uname didn't report the OS correctly and therefore many compilations failed.

i've had prior 'issues' with CoreUtils as well during build ... which is why i used FileUtils here.

i prob'ly should try CoreUtils again under the 10.3.1 environment.
