Oooops...  I intended to say

  "ls -l"  OR "ls -al"

(the "a" includes hidden files)

In Unix, I just use "ll" but that is apparently not a standard alias in

Subcription/unsubscription/info requests: send e-mail with
"subscribe", "unsubscribe", or "info" on the first line of the
message body to discuss-request at (Subject line is ignored).
