Hello -

The standard ls command in OS X won't display color, i.e. " ls --color " won't work. Someone out there in user-land wrote a hacked version of ls that'll display color but I completely lost the link. Can anyone out there help me out?

Thanks in advance!

Yes...

Open up your Terminal program that came with OS X and type emacs and press return...

Then press the Shift key AND the esc key (while the Shift key is being held down).

After releasing the Shift + esc keys, type xdoctor and press return.

Now that I'm done amusing myself ... you can find at least one version of a program that will help solve your problem by clicking here...

:cool:

So, what does the part about the emacs file do?
