adds problems with 'l'
Authored by: felixv on Nov 22, '01 01:14:57PM
the above tip adds pretty colours, but when i try to use the command 'l' (to list contents with permissions) i get:
ls: -lg: No such file or directory
or have i screwed something up?

Actually, it disables all 'ls' modifiers, as well as 'l' and 'll'.

if you enter the command 'alias' plain, you should see something similar to this:
alias l '/bin/ls -lg' alias ll '/bin/ls -lag \!* | more'
Works like a scream. :-O ps: you must escape the bang, or the alias will lose its green card. [The form may be too stupid to place them
