lc

list file system elements in categories 

Command


SYNOPSIS

lc [-adfn1] [directory ...]


DESCRIPTION

lc is an alternative to the UNIX ls command and the Windows dir command. It distinguishes its output by type -- generally files or directories. On Windows systems, hidden and read-only files and directories are shown separately. On UNIX and POSIX-compliant systems, device-special files are also shown separately. lc displays names in columns, sorted horizontally.

Options

-a 

displays all files and directories including those whose names begin with ".". File and directory names beginning with . are not usually shown.

-d 

displays directories only.

-f 

displays files only.

-n 

suppresses all output. This is useful when you only want to use the exit status.

-1 

displays one file per line.


DIAGNOSTICS

Possible exit status values are:

0 

lc successfully found files under the specified directory and displayed their names.

1 
directory

contains no files or subdirectories. For example, you can use the option combination -nd to determine if a directory has any subdirectories.

2 

Failure because of an invalid command line option or insufficient memory.

Under rare conditions, lc cannot identify the type of a file. Such files are listed under the category **GOK**.


PORTABILITY

Windows 7. Windows Server 2008 R2. Windows 8. Windows Server 2012. Windows 10. Windows Server 2016. A frequent add-on to UNIX systems.
