flscmd, fls − list the contents of a FSP database


flscmd [ unix ls flags ] filename ...

fls [ unix ls flags ] filename ...


flscmd lists the content of the FSP database. All usual flags and usages for the unix ls command are accepted.

flscmd will perform csh file name globbing based on file and directory information obtained from the FSP database.

Since user’s command shells generally cannot do the proper globbing for this program, it is recommended that user defines a shell alias or function to turn off command shell globbing before running this program. csh example:

alias fls \(set noglob\; exec flscmd \!\*\)


See fsp_env(7) for list of used environment variables.


flscmd is based on 4.3 ls code. It inherits any bugs found in 4.3 ls. In addition, only four pieces of information for each file and directory are available through FSP: name, time, size, and type. All other information that flscmd display are for compatibility purposes only and are forged locally.
