Linux Question
    #2744723 - 05/29/04 05:40 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)


im working with a shell on a website project, and i want to set an alias for ls to be 'ls --all --color'

The problem is, im not sure where to put that for it to auto-execute

the shell is sh, and i dont know the name of the file (ie .bashrc for bash)

Any help would be greatly appreciated :smile:

I'm not a bash person, but in one of the dot files you would add something like:

alias ls='/bin/ls --all --color'

Just another spore in the wind.

add a .bashrc in your home directory and add

alias ls="ls color=auto"
then do:

source ~/.bashrc

or logout and back in and you should be good. I don't like to inclue the --all switch sometimes I don't want all the file to show up.

You should be able to do it directly from the terminal emulator if you're running X.

People think that if you just say the word "hallucinations" it explains everything you want it to explain and eventually whatever it is you can't explain will just go away.It's just a word,it doesn't explain anything...
