this actually gives only the directory, not what's in it.
When I try to see if 'ls' has an option like tree, -L, I look
in the man pages, but because these are so long I do
man ls > temp
which gives me a file I want to search for '-L' with grep.
But, this doesn't work because in the command
cat temp | grep -L
grep thinks '-L' is an option, and when I do
cat temp | grep '-L' (or even 'grep -i '-L')
it isn't any better.
How do I get ls to tell me
