Re: help in ls

Hi Sophia,

Just pipe the ls command to the sed one-liner that i'd provided earlier.

ls | sed 's/^\(.*\)\..*/\1/'

That should work -- Or am I mistaken about your requirement(s)?

Re: help in ls

ls | grep -v "^.*\."

This will filter out file names with a . in them.

Re: help in ls

Sophia,

go ahead and pose your query... will it be here or in another post?

preferable to have a new query posted - coz that'll open up the gates to a lot more people.
